ACT/SAT Prep Club
The SAT and the ACT are optional college entrance exams for high school students choosing to apply to college. If you're considering taking either test to boost your college applications, join us. The club is a fun way to practice your test-taking skills, learn about concepts on each test, get tips and tricks, and build your confidence for test day!
Club member Ann D. is happy she joined, saying, "I think that the club helped me a lot with preparing and feeling less stressed about taking the SAT, especially since I decided to take the exam with only a few months to prepare. My score was higher than I expected to get. Being calm and confident is better than knowing everything."
We meet during lunch on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month. Here is a link to join any time of the year: LINK to join SAT/ACT Prep Club
