The ACT test for college entrance can be a source of stress and anxiety.

High school students will have an opportunity to gain valuable insight into this test that is required for entrance to many colleges and universities when Wilmington College holds an ACT Prep session April 28, from 9 a.m. to noon.

The session will cover general preparation for the test, suggested strategies for taking the standardized and timed test, dealing with test anxiety and how the ACT is different or similar to other tests.
The event also will help identity those that might additional coaching.

Martha Hendricks, interim associate dean for academic affairs at WC, said the session should be a good investment for many high school students.

“Students (and their families) have already invested a lot of time, money and effort in preparation for their success,” she said. “They’ve studied, participated in sports and extracurricular activities, done volunteer community service and perhaps worked to help pay for college.

“It’s worth a $25 registration fee and spending a Saturday morning to help ensure that they do their best on the ACT.”

WC officials selected the late April date because it is one week before the June ACT test registration deadline. WC is considering hosting another prep session in September.

Registration information is available by contacting the Wilmington College Office of Admission at (937) 382-6661 ext. 260.
