The ACT/SAT Cram session was great. The interactions were amazing. Practice quizzes and reviewing the questions, especially the frequently missed ones, were great ideas as we got to go through them thoroughly so that everyone could understand. Ms. Jatori Little gives amazing tips/strategies, and suggestions on standardized tests.

Keep it up; you guys are doing a phenomenal job! The only feedback is I wish I had known about your organization sooner. My son probably wouldn’t have considered college if it weren’t for EEF. Your organization is an answered prayer.

My daughter didn’t have the highest GPA or test scores; however, after she completed your summer session, you were able to help her increase her grades and overall work ethic. I don’t know what you said to her, but I am so glad she could talk with you guys. She starts college in the Fall!

We took the boys on a college tour with EEF. They allowed middle schoolers to attend, which was everything I had hoped for! It sparked a fire in the boys about college, majors, the black college experience, and the divine 9! Shout out to the spring 23 Nupes, who we saw cross! When I say you have to keep your grades up…they have an incentive!
