ACT Classes being offered

 

Savvy Strategies, a Columbia-based company, has agreed to offer four, 3-hour Saturday ACT prep classes to our students at Helias in March, prior to the April testing date.  Two different classes will be offered simultaneously each Saturday; two teachers will be present each day, one for each class.

Level 1: Savvy Prep (for first-time test-takers or those who scored <26 composite) OR
Level 2: Savvy Prep+ (for those who scored a 26 or higher on a previous ACT)

Total instructional time for students: 12 hours from 8:30 am -11:30 am
• March 9 – English/Math+ for 90 minutes (For both Level 1 and Level 2)
• March 16 – English/Math+ for 90 minutes (For both Level 1 and Level 2)
• March 23 – Reading/Science+ for 90 minutes (For both Level 1 and Level 2)
• March 30 – Reading/Science+ for 90 minutes (For both Level 1 and Level 2)

Signups will begin at 7 am, Thurs., Feb. 21, in the school office (Peggy’s desk) — we will not accept signups before that time. Only juniors and seniors will be able to sign up through March 1 on a first-come, first-served basis for up to 24 students per class. The cost is $100 and must be paid at the time of signup.

On Mon., March 4, if all spots are not full, we will allow sophomores to sign up. If students are not able to attend all four sessions, they will still pay full price. Unfortunately, we cannot pro-rate or offer refunds because the instructor will still be here, regardless of attendance.
