"The work that we do creates positive disturbances or positive movement in our students’ lives and in our communities. We seek change in our society; the status quo is not acceptable. We seek to be agents of beneficial change for our children and the communities we serve. Most importantly, we strive to instill in our children the awareness that they are gifted and have a responsibility to share their gifts and thereby make a difference in their lives and the lives of others."
Providing The Educational Opportunities That Change Lives
Research has shown that test preparation can help improve student performance on college admissions tests by a significant degree, but prep courses cost students $1,000 or more. As a result of this and other factors, students who can afford private tutoring and test preparation often score disproportionately higher on these tests than their peers. Making Waves helps remove that barrier to college by offering students the best commercial preparation available at no cost. Test-prep experts come to Making Waves Education Program and provide students with tutoring, tools, and strategies that help Wave-Makers gain admission to highly competitive institutions.
