Juniors, the ACT is quickly approaching. We are offering two free ACT prep courses; one on Tuesday afternoons and the other on Thursday afternoons. Each session will consist of 6 two hour classes. You can sign up for either session tomorrow, December 10th beginning at 8:00 am in the counseling office. The first 50 juniors to sign up for each session will be included. Space is extremely limited and full commitment to the sessions will be expected as this will be a very valuable experience for juniors. Tuesday sessions will begin on January 8th and Thursday sessions will begin on January 10th.
