Owens offering ACT prep course in March
During each of the four sessions, students will be tutored in all five sections of the ACT test. The actual ACT is comprised of one test in each of the following areas: English, math, reading, science reasoning and writing. In addition to being tutored in these areas through one-on-one teaching, students will learn traditional testing strategies, such as how to take a timed test and how to find the elusive answer to a difficult question.
In addition to offering the ACT preparation class, Owens serves as a host site for the national ACT test. The next testing date after the ACT preparation class is Apr. 4. Prior registration through the ACT organization is required.
Registration for the ACT preparation class must be completed by Feb. 25. Limited seating is available and early registration is recommended.
