ACT Free Interactive Workshop

 
College and Career Readiness Workshops
 
 
 
 
Register today for the 2016 ACT Readiness Workshop, the focus of our ACT College and Career Readiness Workshops this year.

Help your students get ready for the ACT® test by learning in detail about updates and new offerings, including new ACT reports and the new STEM benchmark, PreACT®, ACT Aspire®, ACT Online Prep®, and other test prep offerings. Leave with ideas, actions, and resources to use in your school.

This free half-day, interactive workshop is also a great opportunity to meet with other educators, principals, school counselors, district testing coordinators, and district curriculum professionals. Invite a friend or bring your school team, share ideas with other professionals and connect your insights to your own school’s needs and objectives for achieving college and career readiness.

Register now for an ACT Readiness Workshop near you, or for a live webinar, both kicking off this fall! We encourage you to share this information with others from your school so they can benefit from attending the workshop, too.

Members of the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) will earn 3 clock hours for participating in the workshop. *
