ACT® Test Prep Information
TEST PREP FOR THE ACT® 2012-2013 at Prospect High School
ACT Test Prep registration will open December 3, 2012 through January 11, 2013.
Prospect's Test Prep Seminar:
* offers a comprehensive approach for preparing students to take the ACT
* enables students to apply and practice proven strategies that improve results
* focuses on developing the ability to solve problems, draw conclusions, make inferences, and think analytically
* provides assignments that solidify skills
This course is offered to juniors during second semester in order to prepare for the ACT, a part of the mandatory Prairie State Achievement Exam.
Students will learn how the ACT is scored and develop test-taking strategies to help improve their scores.
Strategies for taking the ACT differ from those that are appropriate for the PSAT/SAT.
This seminar is not an individualized tutorial. It is a review of the course content that students have been exposed to in their high school classes.
Prospect offers three sessions:
SESSION 1: Saturday mornings (8:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.) February 2, 9, 16, 23, March 2, 9.
SESSION 2: Monday After School (3:20 p.m. - 6:45 p.m.) February 4, 11, 18*, 25, March 4, 11.
* Test Prep still meets on February 18th, even though there is no school.
SESSION 3: Wednesday evenings (6:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.) February 6, 13, 20, 27, March 6, 13.
