College test prep company to use All-Star Driver locations

First Choice College Placement will open a new classroom facility in the All-Star Driver building at 601 Main St. (Route 25) in Monroe. The new facility is the result of a partnership with All-Star Driver, a driver’s education school with multiple locations.

First Choice College Placement has been providing SAT and ACT test preparation classes in Milford since 1999. Beginning in August, the same test preparation classes also will be available at three All-Star Driver classroom facilities — Monroe, Norwalk and Wallingford.

“Our two businesses serve the same groups of high school juniors and seniors, so it just made sense to utilize these state-of-the-art classrooms when they are available,” said James Maroney, director of First Choice College Placement.

Using technology in prep classes

According to publicity material, First Choice uses technologies to assist students in its classrooms such as white boards, iPads, and recording each session for review at the student’s convenience.

First Choice College Placement offers guidance on taking standardized tests (SAT/ACT prep), developing college essays, and choosing appropriate schools. The company works with hundreds of students each year in Connecticut and Long Island (it has a Garden City, N.Y. location). Learn more at
