After countless hours of studying and of worrying about getting their dream score, Seton has finally come up with a solution to help students prepare for the ACT. The Seton administration decided to incorporate ACT practice tests and study sessions to students’ schedules to help students achieve a high score. Based on their scores from these tests, students will be put into a groups, receive tips on how to prepare, and will have a chance to practice the test. Throughout this change many students have had their opinions on it. Eleanor Gardner, a sophomore at Seton high school says, “I do not like doing the ACT prep sessions, but I think they will be helpful to improve our scores in the future. I think they will give you a good idea to what kind of questions will be on the ACT and how to study for it.” Mrs. Hollenbach, a Seton staff member says, “We are hoping that a test prep program takes some pressure away because the test will become more familiar to students and students will become more aware of their own performance and the college requirements needed for the career they want to pursue.” Many students have different views on these sessions but overall these sessions are great for the underclassmen and students will be thankful for it when applying for college.
