ACT Boot Camp to be held at SWCC

The TRIO Educational Talent Search (ETS) program at Southwestern Community College (SWCC) is hosting an ACT Boot Camp from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, in the college’s Instructional Center, room 180, to assist high school students in preparation for the ACT Test.

This one-day workshop, being conducted by Mastery Prep, will offer students real ACT questions and teach them tips and tricks to build their confidence for the test. According to statistics provided by Mastery Prep, students may improve their scores by up to three points after attending ACT Boot Camp. Students attending will receive an ACT workbook as well.

This event is open to students in ninth-12th grades. There are openings for 100 students. Students who are in the ETS program are eligible to attend the event for free and should register as soon as possible. Non-ETS participants may also register and will be charged $50 to attend. A light lunch will be provided during this event.

Students may sign up by calling 800-247-4023, ext. 392, locally at 641-782-1392 or by emailing ets@swcciowa.edu.
