The District is excited to announce a new opportunity for our students considering college after graduation. Per the Ohio Department of Education, all juniors are required to take a college and career readiness test. At Riverside, that test for juniors is the ACT on February 27, 2018, which is free.
In order to assist students in their preparation for the ACT, Riverside is offering the option of an online ACT prep program. The online program is offered through ACT and is a self-paced, individualized program that allows students to identify their weak areas and then provides practice to strengthen those areas. Studies have shown that students who prepare for these tests by focusing on areas of content where they have weakness and practicing test-taking strategies can improve their scores. With improvement, students may be able to consider a whole new range of colleges that otherwise would have been out of reach and possibly access scholarships.
Riverside is offering this program - to students in grades 9-12 - at a reduced rate of $20.00. Upon enrollment, students will have access to the program for one year. Spaces in the program are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested students should bring $20.00 (cash or check made payable to the Riverside Campus) to Mrs. Maczuzak in the guidance office.
For more information, students and parents can visit the ACT website at www.act.org and search ACT online prep. Questions should be emailed to Melissa Mlakar, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, at email@example.com.
