Please don’t forget about the ACT Club we have available for you here at Assumption:
- ACT: Why not build your ACT knowledge, confidence, and understanding a little bit each week instead of cramming right before the test? ACT club takes only twenty minutes, and we finish so early, you won’t even have to miss practice! Testing is timed, and students are assisted in improving their testing speed. When time is up, either Mrs. Lamp, Mrs. Wallace, or Mrs. Eliopulos is available to answer questions and help students analyze their answers. ACT club meets TUESDAYS from 2:50 to 3:10. It is important to show up to ACT Club as frequently as possible before you take the ACT test.
