A note from AllPencilsDown:

"On January 14, 2016, AllPencilsDown will begin our new ACT Prep course for sophomores!  This course is specifically designed to meet the needs of college bound students who would like to get a head start on the ACT testing process.

In our regular course, we will take the approach that students have already learned the subject material in school classes, and we design the course to review and practice that material.  The “Head Start” course will be designed to do more actual teaching of the subject material needed for the ACT.  

This course will help students understand what the test covers and prepare them for the February ACT.  We highly recommends that students register for the February test and take it.  The course is much more effective if students work through it and then apply it on an actual test.  This will allow parents and students to establish a baseline score to determine what additional developmental needs exist. Parents and students are then well equipped to formulate a plan for moving forward towards further score improvement."
