TUPELO, Miss. (AP) – Tupelo High School is adding resources to help its students score better on the ACT.
The test is used by most Southern colleges and universities to determine admission, scholarships and whether or not students must take remedial classes. It also may soon be used as part of the state’s formula to rank Mississippi high schools.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/GMHB4i) Tupelo High has expanded its existing ACT prep class, purchased an online resource and found ways to offer the test for free to many of its students this year.
Students can prepare for the tests at home, using the ACT prep online program that the district purchased last year for them to use. Plus, school counselors lead an after-school ACT workshop before each test.
