Do you have a student taking the SAT or ACT this year? Are you planning to take it yourself? The SAT/ACT and College Application Prerequisites & Process course can help.
This is the first session in a unique two-day opportunity perfect for students who plan to pursue post-secondary education. The course guides students regarding the college application process, pre-requisites for admission, and the ACT/SAT pre-admission test. Advice on preparation for the two major college entrance exams currently required by most institutions of higher learning will be detailed. The course will review practice test items and non-visual ways to understand charts, tables and graphs on the tests. All students who will be enrolled in 9th-12th grades during the 2019-20 school year are welcome to apply for this two-session program. Students will increase skills & experience in:
