The Legacy ACT workshop includes the content Jane Ross instructors have been sharing with test takers for over four decades. Students will learn strategies for all four parts of the test with a focus on timing strategies and a review of critical material students need to know for the test.
This workshop meets from 9am-3pm in the Jane Ross classroom in Cordova.
For the workshop, students will need to bring a pencil and calculator. During the lunch break (typically 11:45-12:15), students will be allowed to go quickly to a nearby fast food restaurant, or students may bring a sack lunch with a drink and eat in the classroom.
Students canceling a class in advance will receive a credit for another class or workshop. No cash refunds.
