While area high school seniors begin the college application process, juniors find themselves just days away from taking the PSAT — two significant academic opportunities that can change the path of students’ pursuit of higher education.

With today’s educational standards at an all-time high, now more than ever test scores matter. Gone are the days when students simply show up, take the test and send in scores.

Test prep and reassessment have become the norm, and the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center, working in conjunction with Bob Brausch of Tutoring by B2, now offer “Attacking the ACT” 101 and 102 workshops to help students exceed their educational goals and achieve their highest potential.

The Attacking the ACT 102 workshop is focused towards juniors and seniors who have advanced past the fundamentals of the ACT, have earned relatively high composite scores on previous ACT administrations, and are looking for additional tips to further boost final composite scores as they work through practice ACT questions at a faster pace.

The workshop can serve as a final test prep opportunity before the Oct. 22 ACT and for area seniors working to meet the Nov. 1 deadline for applying for college in hopes of early action decisions and scholarship money.

The workshop will also benefit juniors taking the PSAT on Oct. 19, as only scores from the PSAT taken during the junior year of high school are considered for the National Merit Scholarship competition awarded during students’ senior year of high school.

For workshop registration and/or additional information regarding the “Attacking the ACT 102” workshop, please visit southernohioesc.org.
