Area students can refine their test- taking skills in time for college entrance exams in a two-week class offered several times throughout the year at the EAJ Institute, a division of New Vistas Center for Education, 670 N. Arizona Ave., Suite 35, Chandler. The class prepares students for the


Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT), offered to students beginning in 10th grade as preparation for National Merit Scholar competitions and the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Scoring well on the test can open doors to college entrance, scholarships and other honors.


Classes are taught by math teacher Jim


Barnette and language arts teacher and Shakespearean coach Stacey Trepanier. Barnette has taught for 35 years; Trepanier has taught for 19. “When students take this 10-session


class,” says EAJ Institute Director Dr. Eleanor Jordan, “they will be equipped, confident and prepared to perform at the pinnacle of their capabilities.” Registration is required for the class. For more information about PSAT


preparation classes, call EAJ Institute at 480-963-2313 or visit www.newvistasaz. com/eajinstitute.html.
