Getting Ready for College: Things to Do NOW

Summer Break!!
Great time to visit universities and colleges in our lovely state
and beyond...
Keep in mind that many out-of state schools in the western U.S. participate in the WICHE program which offers lower tuition

Google it (WICHE) for more information


Juniors who are not pleased with their ACT scores might want to consider retaking the ACT test. Universities use the ACT as a placement test in to writing and math classes. Go to act.org for cost, registration and test dates and locations. Students receive higher scores if they take the time to take some free ACT prep tests.
