Who We Are
SC Test Prep is a Spartanburg based nonprofit organization that believes educational attainment is the surest route to socio-economic mobility and empowerment, both for individuals and the broader communities in which they live. In our hometown of Spartanburg, SC, the difference in average lifetime earnings for college and high school graduates is approximately $752,000, while statewide the benefits of education are even greater, with the difference estimated at $1.2 million over the course of a career.
Currently however, in Spartanburg County only 21.3% of adults possess a bachelor’s degree, and only 25.1% of South Carolinians have achieved that same standard of educational success, denying our students and state the best opportunity for a brighter future.
Through our services, primarily standardized test preparation and college counseling, we transform that future, providing our students with the means to become professionally and financially stable, capable of enriching their cities, counties, and state through personal success.
What We Do
Through a range of services, SC Test Prep meets the diverse needs of South Carolina’s students, families, and schools. In 2014, we helped more than 3,000 students achieve their educational goals, with an average SAT score improvement of 115 points and an over 90% acceptance rate into the colleges or universities of their choice.
By operating as a nonprofit organization, we ensure that those most in need of our assistance can afford it. Generous gifts from foundations, corporate sponsors, and dedicated individual donors allow us to subsidize the cost of our fee-based programs below that of comparable for-profit options, and to offer no-cost opportunities for those with significant financial need.
