The ACT is the college-readiness standardized test of choice in most of our country, and it is steadily gaining in popularity here in Massachusetts. It is accepted by all colleges and may be a better choice for some students. The ACT tests math, science, reading, and writing (the writing portion of the test is optional). We are pleased to partner with Summit Educational Group to offer a comprehensive program that covers all sections of the ACT exam. We will cover fundamental academic skills like algebra, critical reading, and grammar, as well as essential test-taking strategies. The program will run Monday-Thursday, August 20-23, 9am-12pm. Students will take a full-length practice exam during the first class (1pm finish that day). All materials are provided. Register at newtoncommunityed.org or call 617-559-6999.
