ACT Prep Sessions at the Pavilion
March 02, 2010 12:02 PMThe Washington Pavilion
For some high school students, they call it the biggest test of their lives: the ACT Test is a college entrance exam.
But now the Washington Pavilion and Dakota State University are joining forces to help high school students prepare.
And these high school students are hoping they don’t buckle under the pressure, including Paul Dybedahl, who drove 30miles just for this class.
"Its one of the biggest tests of a high school student basically,” said Paul Dybedahl, Tri-Valley student.
For students in this region the ACT Test is the main college entrance exam.
"Now is the time when kids are starting to think about college and when you think about college you ultimately think about your ACTs," said Elizabeth Nelson, Project Manager, Washington Pavilion.
For the first time the Washington Pavilion and Dakota State University are teaming up to help high school students prepare.
"These classes really help and have been proven to improve kids scores and it’s just a very important part for getting into a good university and excelling in college setting," said Elizabeth Nelson/Project Manager, Washington Pavilion.
DSU faculty with expertise in each content area will help students identify their strengths and weaknesses, through practice tests, tutorials and practice questions.
"We actually use college faculty to teach the different sessions and to really prepare them for going into that activity and that particular test in that particular area, so we think that is a unique way and a good way for students to be exposed to those different pieces of the ACT," said Doug Knowlton, President at Dakota State University.
It is not too late to sign up for the ACT Prep sessions.
