ACT  

ACT prep is designed to help students improve their score on the ACT. The class is team taught so that each section (math, science, reading, and English) is taught by a specialized instructor. The final exam requirement will be fullfilled by taking a live ACT in December. Please note that the class fee of $50.50 should be paid directly to the act.org and students are responsible for registering themselves for the test. < http://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-act/registration/fees.html>

Summer Reading List 

Summer reading assignments for AP Literature and Composition (12): The Kite Runner, 1984, and Cold Mountain.

Testing on each book will occur during the first week of class. You may bring your book, but you will not be allowed to share books and no digital copies are allowed.

PSAT info  

Welcome to PSAT! This class is designed to help students grow as critical thinkers in math, critical reading, and writing. PSAT prep is team taught by three specialists in order to give students the best instruction in each area. The end goal of the class is to prepare students for the PSAT/NMSQT test that is taken in October of their junior year. The score on this test is what qualifies students to become National Merit Finalists.
PSAT prep is a three part class that begins in January of the sophomore year. It is followed by a week long summer camp that usually is held at the beginning of June. Juniors will take the final section the during the first nine weeks which ends with the PSAT test in October. Students will also need to take the December SAT.
