Registration is now open for Cherokee Nation Foundation’s spring ACT prep classes. The six-week course is offered to juniors and seniors in Sallisaw and Fort Gibson.
The program is offered for free to citizens of any federally recognized tribe and costs $150 for nonnative students. Preference is given to Cherokee Nation citizens.
Classes begin in late February and conclude with students taking the National ACT exam on April 14. A practice test is available Feb. 24 for students who have not previously taken an ACT test to establish a base score.
Curriculum includes interactive instruction by a Princeton Review instructor and two practice tests. In previous years, students have increased their scores by an average of 3.5 points, and some individual scores have increased by as much as 10 points.
