News to share.....Still in the pandemic - not knowing how long schools would be closed for the academic year, Ms. Andrews worked closely with her students to see this year through to the end as she does every year but also realizing that these students were missing so much. Fortunately, a couple of years earlier Ms. Andrews had switched to online FaceTime, Skype, and GoogleMeets with her students, which they seemed to like best due to their busy schedules. It was a smooth transition for all Success+ students because they were accustomed to meeting with Ms. Andrews in such a manner. Together, Ms. Andrews and her students worked through all things college and success was had by all students. We prepped for testing, worked diligently on essay writing, and contacted college representatives, which allowed all of her students to be up-to-date on each college's policies concerning the pandemic. It was a maze, but we did not let it slow our progress. Success+ students saw great success in the year with high test scores and acceptances to their top colleges. Some earned scholarships in these trying times and now prepare for next year with hopes of a pandemic no longer. 

2019-2020 News to share.....The pandemic did not stop Success+. Fortunately, Success+ had guided its students in the fall, prior to the start of the pandemic in the spring, to another banner year of college acceptances, scholarships, testing, essay writing, and all things college. Once prepped for testing, Success+ students pushed their test scores to new heights. Several students had perfect scores on parts of the SAT and ACT and two had perfect overall scores. Students were elated with admissions in the spring, getting into their top tier colleges and universities. Students really stretched themselves in the spring when the pandemic shut schools down in mid-March for what most folks thought would be for only two weeks. Sadly, the two weeks became months closing school that year having school online. Our students persevered never experiencing prom, graduation, parties, and so much more. All thought all would be fine in August - but it just didn't happen that way. 

2018-2019 News to share.....Success+ students continue to perform extremely well on their testing with the test prep provided by Ms. Andrews. For example, 80% of students increase their scores by 200 or more points on the SAT, 14% increase their scores between 100 and 199 points, and 6% will see growth less than 100 points.  On the ACT, similar upward movement is seen by Success+ students....82% see a 6 or more point increase, 14% see between a 3 to 5 point increase, and 4% will see up to a 2 point increase. It has been a remarkable year with college acceptances and once again a Morehead/Cain recipient, Elon Fellows, Presidential at HPU, an EC Scholar recipient, and even more recipients of scholarships at Duke, Wake Forest, University of Virginia and the list goes on and on. Furthermore, much success has been made by underclassmen by acceptances to Governors School (5), NCSSM (4), Hugh Shelton (7) to just name a few. This coming summer will be the first ever summer application boot camp to help our current juniors prepare for the college application process.

Her students have worked hard to accomplish the test scores needed for college admission.
