It's time to level the college admissions playing field

Educational opportunities continue to rely on flawed exams, such as the ACT and SAT. With limited resources, schools struggle to prepare students for these exams effectively. Most turn to outside test prep providers, but many families can't afford such an investment. In response, the Louisville Urban League and Equitas Prep are partnering to provide JCPS students with the best tutoring experience in Louisville at no cost to families.


If your student is eligible and wants to get started, sign up as soon as possible since the number of fully-funded scholarships are limited.
