COLLEGE AND SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION

(NEW) (JUNIORS) ACT PREP COURSE –  Registration is due by Wednesday, January 22

Eastview High School is offering the ACT Prep Course to help you prepare for this important test.  The course provides 12+ hours of focused study in preparation for the ACT Test.  Our experienced teachers will navigate students through the ACT testing process. This year we continue our use of PREPWORKS (https://prepworks.com/) as our online support program.  Prepworks features a personalized learning path that continues long after the student completes the 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. Students may also attend the ACT Workshop sessions in February at no additional cost.  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.  Sophomores may attend this course; however, the online program (Prepworks) is only active through the end of the school year.  Renewal cost is $30.  

Registration is limited to 15 students per class.  Please register promptly in FeePay**.  

SEMESTER 2 (Jan-Apr) Curriculum will be completed prior to the April 7th test for Juniors.
