Register Now for Spring Semester ACT Prep Classes at LHS
Lemont High School will offer an eight-week preparation program designed to familiarize students with the ACT test.
Beginning in January, Lemont High School will offer ACT 36, an eight-week test preparation program designed to familiarize students with the ACT, which all of the school’s juniors will take on April 23, 2013, as part of the PSAE Exam.
The course, which costs $300 for eight sessions, is open to all Lemont High School juniors as well as juniors from other area schools. At the end of the program, Lemont High School students who have had perfect attendance will receive a $50 rebate on the cost of their registration.
The rebate will be issued only to Lemont High School students. Students who miss a course due to illness or an extra-curricular conflict may make up the missed class and still be eligible for the rebate.
Students may choose between two eight-week programs, each of consisting of two-hour weekly sessions that run from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Lemont High School.
The first session begins Monday, Jan. 14, and will meet each Monday through March 18, except Jan. 21(Martin Luther King, Jr., Day), Feb. 18 (Presidents’ Day) and March 3 (Casimir Pulaski Day).
The second session will meet on Wednesdays beginning Jan. 30 and ending March 20. Students in both sessions will take a Practice ACT, having the option of either Wednesday, March 13 (5:30-9 p.m.) or Saturday, March 16 (8:30 a.m.-12 p.m.) to take the exam.
Information packets have been mailed to the parents of current Lemont High School juniors. The deadline to register for one of the school’s two ACT 36 programs is Friday, Dec. 7. Enrollment is guaranteed to all students who register by the deadline.
Completed registration forms and full payment should be returned to Dana Browne in the school’s Pupil Personnel Services office. Parents should provide two checks made payable to Lemont High School – one for $250, and one for $50, the latter of which will be returned to the parents if the student has perfect attendance at the end of the program.
The goal of ACT 36 is to give students the confidence, strategies and content necessary to score their personal best on the ACT. The course does this by familiarizing students with the elements of the ACT, from content and timing to pacing and strategies.
The course also reviews difficult concepts, specifically in English and mathematics, and allows students an opportunity to take a practice exam. All ACT 36 instructors are carefully trained and certified.
