    The dates for this year's after-school ACT prep are listed below. The classes are designed to get students ready for the October 26th, 2019 test.

    The last day to register for the October 26th test, without paying a late penalty, is September 20th. The last day to register for the October 26th test, with a penalty, is October 4th. Signing up for the ACT test is the responsibility of each student. 

    The prep class meets in the lecture hall which limits attendance to around 100 students.  The seats will be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis, with seniors given first priority. 

    The prep sessions are three hours long and broken into four 45 minute sessions covering all four sections of the ACT exam. Bringing a "quiet" snack and a drink is recommended.
