Review Classes to Prepare for the July ACT…

LINK: July 18, 2020 ACT Review Classes

THE COLLEGE PROJECT will be holding
a five-week ACT Review Class for the July 18, 2020 Test. These classes
will be held at the company’s office in Lexington, if possible, and
if not possible, they will occur via Zoom. Even in the event they can
be held at the office, should a student desire to take the classes via
Zoom, that will be accommodated

The classes will begin the week of June 16, 2020. Each week is spent
covering a different section of the test. Students learn content (what
is being tested) and test taking strategies as they pertain to each
section of the test and the test as a whole. A timed practice test for
each section is given, graded and missed questions reviewed. A
full-length test is given at the final weeks class.

This five-week ACT Review course is offered several days per week
(Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday) for the convenience of meeting a
student’s busy schedule. The student may choose different days each
week.

For further details, weekly schedules and sign up please see:

Juniors-March ACT Update!!!

March ACT Update!

Juniors, we have received the following information regarding the March 10 ACT scores:
• Answer sheets are currently being scored in batches. Not all students from one school or district may be included in the same batch, so scores may not all be released at the same time.
• The typical turnaround time for scores is 3 to 8 weeks. During this uncertain time, it is possible that scoring may take longer.
• Please remember that all juniors in the state are in the same situation, so it is likely that colleges will need to make some concessions on timelines regarding dual credit courses and ACT score submissions.

Scores may be viewed through a free ACT web account. Students may create an account at ACTstudent.org if they have not already done so. For questions regarding the creation of the account, please contact ACT-WebAccount@act.org. Score reports will also be mailed to the student provided home address.

We have not yet had any direction from the Kentucky Department of Education regarding Juniors who were absent on March 10 and the administration of a make up ACT. We will update impacted students when we receive information.

Stay safe and healthy, Warhawks!
