Extension offers course to prepare for the ACT

SALISBURY — Do you want to go to college? Are you intimidated by college entrance examinations such as the ACT? As a high school student, preparing for a college entrance examination, like the ACT, can be pretty difficult. Fortunately, Rowan County Cooperative Extension is now offering a course to prepare you for the ACT College Entrance Examination through the A.S.P.I.R.E. (ACT Supplemental Preparation In Rural Education) Program. By participating in an A.S.P.I.R.E. ACT Class, you will learn the latest tactics and strategies to improve your ACT score and increase your chances of getting into college!
The A.S.P.I.R.E. program is designed to bridge deficits in rural high school students’ performance on the ACT College Entrance Examination in order to increase the number of students pursuing higher education in agriculture. This is a cooperative initiative through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University and North Carolina Cooperative Extension.
The program includes The Princeton Review ACT study manual, The Princeton Review 1,296 practice question manual, four ACT full-length practice exams with score analysis and breakdown, The Princeton Review selective college admissions booklet and 30 hours of class time instruction, where students will learn the skills they need to be able to tackle the ACT. The class will start on June 8 at the Rowan County Extension Office. The cost is $150 with up to a $100 refundable deposit, based on attendance, which you will get back at the completion of the course.
If you are interested in participating in the A.S.P.I.R.E. ACT course offered in your community, please contact Rachel Huffman at 919-515-2627 or rehuffma@ncsu.edu; or Sara Drake at 704-216-8970 or sara_drake@ncsu.edu to receive an A.S.P.I.R.E. application. If you would like more information about the course, there will be an informational session on Wednesday, April 17, at 7 p.m. at the Rowan County Extension Office, 2727 Old Concord Road.
