CHS to offer ACT review course
Cassville High School will offer an ACT review course over a three-day time frame in October.
The course cost is $35, and includes two workbooks and a practice test. The fee must be paid in advance.
On Saturday, Oct. 13, students will complete a practice ACT test under actual testing conditions. The test will begin at 8 a.m., and must be completed by 11:45 a.m. Students must take the practice test to continue the course.
Students will meet again on Thursday, Oct. 18. The ses- sion will offer a review of the practice test scores and tutor- ing and review of all four ACT test areas.
On Thursday, Oct. 25, students will grade and discuss their assigned practice exercises and continue working in the ACT workbooks.
As a final activity, students will complete the official ACT test on Saturday, Oct. 27 or Saturday, Dec. 8. The reg- istration deadline for the October test has passed. The regis- tration deadline for the December test is Friday, Nov. 2.
Although registration packets are available in the coun- selors' office, ACT registration must be completed at www.actstudent.org. Fee waivers are available from the counselors' office for juniors and seniors who qualify for free or reduced lunch.
The ACT review course is limited to the first 25 Cassville High School students who register and pay the $35 course fee. Students who participated in the class in the past will be eligible to participate again at no cost if they still have their books and if space is available.
High school counselors strongly recommend seniors participate in the class this fall. Similar classes are offered through private companies for as much as $750. In Missouri, a score of 31 guarantees a student for the Bright Flight Schol- arship, which provides $2,000 a year and is renewable for up to five years.
Students can register for the ACT review course in the high school counselors' office. The registration deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 10.
