Created in 2006, PROJECT 2400 is a strategic partnership between the Cobb Chamber of Commerce and the Cobb County School District to help enhance our students' SAT scores, which is now based on a score of 2400.
Cobb County and Marietta City schools fare well compared to other systems in the U.S. and Georgia. However, many students lag behind or miss out on an opportunity to attend their college of choice due to low test scores.
The Cobb Chamber helps fund Project 2400 to provide an SAT preparation course for students in their junior year of high school.

PROJECT 2400 has received and got excellent reviews from our educators and students.
“Any increase is great and Project 2400 clearly made a difference,” says Leigh Colburn, principal of Marietta High School.
"I think the most beneficial part of the class was taking the practice tests, because familiarity with the questions makes a huge difference on test day. This class made a huge difference, and will hopefully give me that step up in the college admissions process." says Kristina Sick, Pope High School
