Who Should Attend?
Juniors and seniors who would like to improve their ACT scores as well as motivated freshmen and sophomores who are interested in getting a head start on their ACT preparation may register. Students who plan to take the SAT and PSAT will also benefit from this crash course due to the considerable overlap between the ACT and SAT/PSAT. Parents are invited to join their students for the section on test-taking tips and winning strategies that takes place during the last 20 minutes of the crash course. A Q&A session with Dr. Sampath will follow the crash course to discuss upcoming test cancellations, ACT enhancements in September, strategies and timetable for tackling standardized testing in today's environment, and any other topics on parent and student minds.
