Hot, sunny Saturdays in Rochester are like rainbows: too rare and beautiful to ignore. So when more than 30 high schoolers jammed into the Pittsford Library’s Fisher Meeting Room this past weekend, something serious must have been at stake. Yet, these teens were only there to practice.
Every athlete and performer knows you play like you practice. When we see high schoolers filling rooms across Rochester weekend after weekend for practice SATs and ACTs, we know that the irreplaceable value of practice is becoming clear to students who want their best test scores.
The photo above is a snapshot of what we see time and time again: motivated teens trying their best to become even better. Some of them were seeing the test for the first time, while others were on their third or fourth practice test to sharpen the cutting edge of performance. Even though they spent four hours indoors, none of them squandered that beautiful day.
According to Hillary Clinton, “Showing up is not all of life – but it counts for a lot.” We host practice tests nearly every week of the year. Make sure you show up!
