Potomac State to Offer ACT Prep Course This Spring

As high school students set their sights on their futures, college preparation is going to rise to the top of their “To Do” lists. One college readiness tool is the ACT, originally an abbreviation for American College Testing, a standardized test that measures high school achievement and college admissions.

ACT Test prepThis spring, Potomac State College of West Virginia University will offer an ACT Prep Course on Tuesday evenings March 10, 17, 24, 31, and April 14 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Marlene Altobello and Deborah Seldomridge, both former high school teachers in English and math, respectively, will serve as course instructors. The cost will be $75.

The benefits of working to improve ACT scores are that it helps West Virginia students qualify for the PROMISE scholarship, it helps to increase students’ scholarship offers from colleges and it helps students avoid taking remedial classes in college.

While long-term learning in school is certainly the best form of test preparation for the ACT, this short-term preparation course will allow students to:

·  Refresh their previous learning,

·  Acquaint themselves with the test structure,

·  Engage in a variety of practice activities,

·  Examine strategies that can increase their confidence in test-taking.

English, reading and mathematics will be the emphasis of this course. Seniors will be given priority if class size limits are reached.

This ACT Prep Course is being offered in time to give students the opportunity to take the ACT in April and/or June to qualify for the PROMISE scholarship.
