College and SAT Prep Workshops for the 2023–2024 School Year

By Yona Y. RSS Mon, September 25, 2023

This school year, college and test prep workshops return to the Free Library, hosted by Field Teen Center in partnership with The Alexander Advantage.

This free series is for youth ages 12–18 and includes both in-person and virtual sessions. Virtual sessions will be accessible on the Free Library Teen Central Youtube channel.

Fall workshops will explore paying for college and college essay writing, with both in-person and virtual sessions.

Spring workshops will take a deeper dive into the SAT, a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. In addition to instruction on each section of the test (Reading, Writing, and Math), there will also be two proctored practice exams. Students who attend all five in-person SAT workshop sessions will receive a $10 gift card. To register, call 215-686-5395 or email

This program series is made possible by grants from the Philadelphia City Institute Board of Managers and the Independence Foundation.

And of course, you can always check out SAT prep books from our catalog.

With these resources, we hope you have a successful school year! And we hope you remember to make time for fun and rest too.
