Kaplan has just launched a program called Practice with a Purpose. We’ve partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and we’re aiming for a goal of 100 scholarships donated, which is a value of up to $125,000.

By visiting our free online practice resource hub, students can take a free pop quiz, 20-minute workout, and a full proctored practice test to help prepare for upcoming SAT or ACT exams. Students can sign up and take all three if they’d like, and for each test or quiz a student signs up for, we’re donating a Kaplan Test Prep scholarship to a student in need.
