The ACT is daunting for any high school student, but even more so for those that cannot afford expensive ACT preparation classes or materials. Students hoping to gain admission to a higher education institution know ACT results weigh heavily when being considered for admittance. The Social Development Commission’s (SDC) Youth Services division will provide FREE ACT preparation and supplies to high school students, grades 9 -12, that reside in Milwaukee County.
The ACT preparation workshops consist of two half-day sessions. Students are required to attend both Saturday sessions – May 6 and May 13 from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Participants will not only benefit from both free instruction and ACT preparation book, but will complete practice exercises in all five test areas (English, mathematics, reading, science and writing), Personal Study Plan guidance, and strategies and tips for success. Individual follow-up will also be provided for participants.
The free workshops will be held at the St. Matthew CME Church, 2499 N. 9th Street, Milwaukee.
Online registration is required at cr-sdc.org under the Education & Training section of the Programs page. Interested parents and student may also contact Terrence Moore at email@example.com or 414.906.2826.
