2012-2013 ACT Test Prep
Getting into a college or university is becoming more
competitive each year and students have to do all they can to
stand out. Most colleges look at GPA (45%), the ACT (45%), and
activities (10%) to determine admittance and scholarships. As
little as two additional points could mean the difference in
getting a scholarship or being admitted into a top school. The
ACT test is more important than many things you do over four
years of high school. Take advantage of every opportunity to
excel by investing in your education and preparing ahead of time
and raising your scores by enrolling in an ACT Skills Workshop
offered by Park Hill Community Education. The workshops consist
of 4 weeks (12 hours) of intensive review of ACT problem-solving
concepts and test-taking strategies. Students receive practice
tests and handouts in English, Math and Science. Registration
for the classes does not register you for the actual April 13,
2013 ACT Test. Obtain an ACT Test registration packet from your
high school counselor.
The National Honor Society Induction Ceremony for new initiates
will be on Thursday, March 7th at 7 pm in the auditorium. A cake
and punch reception will follow.
