- In 1996, Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) preparatory seminars were added to the third year program.
Students took daily quizzes, practiced mathematical concepts, worked on vocabulary words, and practiced
reading comprehension. Several timed SAT were administered. All students felt both that the seminars
were useful, and made them more confident about taking the SAT in the near future.
- The 1996 PREP Class was composed of Hispanic (28%), African-American (55%), and women (69%) students who
were interested in possible engineering and science professions. The overall Houston PREP population was
93.8% minority and female students.
- Houston PREP is one of 28 sites of the state-wide TexPREP Program. The 1996 TexPREP follow up survey of
former PREP Scholars showed a 99.9% high school graduation rate. The Survey Results showed 91% are
college students or graduates; 57% of the graduates are engineering or science majors; 75% of the
