o A-List ran a variety of test prep courses out of ten different YMCA branches throughout all five boroughs, working toward May and June 2016 exams. Each class met once a week for 12 weeks for a total of 24 hours of test preparation. Nine of the ten YMCA sites were preparing for the SAT, while students at Westside were gearing up for the ACT.
o A-List ran two SAT programs out of YMCA McBurney, one of which ran until the May SAT, and the other until the June 2016 SAT. Other sites include: Greenpoint, Flushing, Vanderbilt, APPA, Port Richmond, Ridgewood, Leadership Academy, Westside, Thurgood Marshall

…There is a need for the type of program you have developed to be made available to every child regardless of income. This is why I have brought A-List into school districts I have been fortunate enough to lead: to train our teachers and provide the support necessary to improve our students’ scores.
A-List was engaging and substantive for our students. Each week our Dreamers were completely immersed in the class’s content…The sessions were poignant, enjoyable, and challenging and exactly what I had hoped for my Dreamers.
This was by far the most useful professional development session I’ve attended in my career.
