ACT Review Course Description

The ACT measures students' understanding of what they have learned in courses taken prior to entering college.

Students should not expect to prepare for the ACT by "cramming" in a night or two to take the test. The review takes time, and students should expect to prepare thoroughly for the ACT. Penn State's review course will be very helpful to students, enabling them to feel more prepared for the exam.

Ready, Set, GO - A Pre-College Preparation Program

The purpose of this course is to reframe, within the liberal arts tradition, the academic skills high school students currently possess as well as introduce new skills. Through active participation, practice, and reflection, students will sharpen their skills in the following areas: reading, writing, listening, reasoning and critical thinking, problem solving and studying, and student reflection.

Students will practice these skills in written and discussion formats and will bridge the gap between academic efforts and "real life" applications. In addition, this course will illustrate the connections found within and among content areas and disciplines.

Please Note: This is an accelerated course. It is presumed that students enrolled in this course are highly motivated and prepared to include study and homework time outside of class time.
