Closing the Test Preparation Gap.
Higher scores translate to more success in college admissions, and greater educational equity for students who might not otherwise have access to formal preparation. In collaboration with our partner schools, we’ve succeeded in helping students gain the Test Confidence™ they need to raise their score.
Our programs help students significantly increase their SAT score–a big leg up during college admissions.
104 point avg SAT score increases
A combination of stronger academic skills, deeper college knowledge, and greater motivation results in significant score increases.
2x increases in college readiness
Students who finish our program are twice as likely to meet or exceed the the College Board’s college readiness benchmarks in both math and reading & writing.
Four out of five CollegeSpring students say they are more prepared for the SAT and confident they can get into college.
Due to inequities in test preparation, students from low-income backgrounds often earn lower SAT scores than their peers from higher-income backgrounds. The score gains students make after completing CollegeSpring make up for a significant proportion of this score gap.
Increasing College Readiness
Students who complete our program are over twice as likely as their peers to meet the College Board’s score benchmarks for college readiness in Math, and nearly as likely to meet Reading benchmarks. Students also say they are more confident in their desire to attend college. In addition, four out of five CollegeSpring students say they are more prepared for the SAT or ACT and confident they can get into college.
84% of CollegeSpring students are from low-income households
73% of CollegeSpring students would be the first in their family to attend college.
47% of CollegeSpring students speak English as a second language.
What Students & Teachers Say
“I remember I took my second practice SAT test, and my score jumped! And I [thought] maybe it wasn’t pointless, maybe there was a reason for all of this…”
– Ron, CollegeSpring alumnus, Oakland, CA
“After going through the program, I felt less stressed about starting the college application process and at the same time I felt excited about going to college and learning to be independent.”
– Rachel, CollegeSpring alumna, Los Angeles, CA
“I have students who had a great CollegeSpring experience and who are now freshman. I have about seven at UCSD who all went through the CollegeSpring program, all improved their scores. So it definitely works, they’re definitely going.”
