Registration opens for free six-week ACT prep classes for teens
The New Orleans Recreation Development Commission and Chevron will host a free six-week Princeton Review ACT Fundamentals Program for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors from Saturday, April 27, through Saturday, July 1, at Milne Recreation Center, 5420 Franklin Ave.
The Chevron-sponsored ACT Program is taught by ACT prep instructors and includes in-class guidance, study guides and practice tests from The Princeton Review.
The course equips students with the test-taking strategies and skills needed to be successful on the ACT, a standardized test used for college admission.
During the sessions, students will practice with questions similar to those on the ACT. Full-length diagnostic tests will give students hands on practice in a timed environment, helping them gain confidence and reduce test-taking anxiety.
The sessions are facilitated by instructors from The Princeton Review, a leader in helping college-bound students achieve higher test scores. Individuals that successfully complete this course should see an increase in their ACT score.
Upon registration, students are expected to attend all six weeks and participate in the practice tests. Enrollees are given three to six hours of instruction each week, 120 days access to The Princeton Review’s online student portal, and three to four practice tests. Students will also have an opportunity to take the ACT test at the end of the program.
Registration is required and spaces are limited. For more information or to register, please visit www.nordc.org or call 504-658-3052.
