JUNIORS, please remember, if you have not already done so, you are strongly encouraged to take the ACT by the end of your junior year. 

  • ACT CLUB: 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. Smyth, 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.
First Tuesday English/Reading (Mrs. Smyth’s Room)
Second Tuesday Math (Mrs. Johnson’s Room)
Third Tuesday Science (Mrs. Wallace’s Room)
