One recommendation: Take the SAT Prep Course and ensure you take one with proven results, it is worth the money.
LOL, we have very different opinions of "very small town". I have lived in towns where the population of the entire town is less than the 1000 students in you DS's high school. I once attended a small school in Idaho where the 7th and 8th grade classes were combined in one classroom and totaled less than 15 students!We live in a very small town. Think high school has a total population of just over 1000 students. We are in California--can be competitive. DS only took 3 maybe 4 AP classes total--3 were math and physics and 1 yr Sr. Eng. His GPA was very strong and math ACT/SAT was strong. His sports and outside school activities and leadership were very strong. He is currently a youngster at USNA and doing extremely well. So, just because you live in a small town/small school with limited opportunities don't give up! It is still doable.
