After School ACT Prep Workshops

09/14/2018

Reminder: Online Resources. As recently announced, we have developed a site of ACT Prep resources to help students prepare for the national exams. (To access the site link from the Runnels home page, select “Academics” then “College Corner” then “ACT Prep Resources.”)
 
New: After-School Workshops. In addition to the online resources, we are offering after-school workshops to help interested students prepare for the October 27th national ACT exam. Those who attend at least one workshop are also eligible to take a full-length practice test that will be professionally scored and analyzed by The Princeton Review. The workshops and practice test will be repeated in the spring prior to the April 13th exam. 
 
Cost and Registration. Students may sign up for any or all of the 90-minute workshops between now and September 28th at a cost of $15 per session. There is no charge for the full-length practice test. Spots will be billed to Smart Tuition and are non-refundable. A Google form with registration details will be sent out early next week to high school students and parents (10th grade and above).
 
Workshop times and location. Workshops will take place in Room 153 from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. on the dates specified below.
 
Space is limited. If registration exceeds maximum capacity, preference for workshop attendance and the timed practice test will be given in the following order: 
1st - Seniors who have signed up for the October 27th test date
2nd - Juniors who have signed up for the October 27th test date
3rd - All others in order of date of workshop sign-up submission.
 
Workshop Preparation and Follow Up. Students who are planning to attend the math workshop must complete a set of practice materials prior to the start of the workshop. Students who would like to discuss the results of their scores from The Princeton Review full-length test should contact Ms. Herumin in the high school library. There is no charge for this service.
