After school programs are soaring at Selma High School. One such program ACT Prep Initiative provides tutorials to students working to improve ACT college entrance exam scores. There is a critical need to shift our children’s mindsets from “I can’t go to college” to “I am going to college.” Data show an alarming decrease in ACT scores desired by colleges for admittance and scholarship opportunity. ACT Prep Initiative provides students with an overview of the ACT test content, complete diagnostic testing, receive a personalized evaluation of ACT readiness, and practice tests.
Unique to Selma City Schools, Selma High School students are receiving free ACT professional tutorials, free transportation, and an afternoon snack. The program starts tutorials on December 5th, Monday- Thursday from 3:30- 5:30 at Selma High School. Students, who finished the program on last year, received gains of 2 points- 6 points on the ACT Test. Only Selma High School students in the 11th and 12th grade are permitted to enroll in the program. To ensure students are successful and attain the full benefits of the program, parents are required to share in the experience. In order to enroll, a parent or guardian must attend a mandatory orientation meeting on Monday, December 5th in the Selma High School auditorium at 5:00 p.m.
