COLLEGE AND SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION
(NEW) (JUNIORS) ACT PREP COURSE –REGISTRATION IS DUE BY WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26
New Schedule and Curriculum! Please note this course will only be offered once during each semester. Eastview High School is offering the ACT Prep Course to help you prepare for this important test. The course provides 16+ hours of focused study in preparation for the ACT Test. Our experienced teachers will navigate students through the ACT testing process. This year we are introducing PREPWORKS (https://prepworks.com/) as our online support program. Prepworks features a personalized learning path that continues long after the student completes our course. The combined after school course and online resource will help students build confidence and skills that will boost their scores on the actual test. The cost of the program is $180, which includes instruction, online program and testing materials. Scholarships are available for students who need financial assistance (see Larinda Hodges in Guidance). Whether you have taken the ACT test before or you are new to the experience, we will prepare you to do your personal best.
Registration is limited to 15 students per class. Classes will fill. Registration forms, calendars and detailed information can be found at our web site: EVHS homepage / Academics / ACT Prep
