LCSC to offer ACT preparation courses this fall

LEWISTON, Idaho – Lewis-Clark State College is offering ACT preparation courses one night each week in September and October to help high school students prepare for the ACT test.

The classes will be held at 6-8 p.m. in Sacajawea Hall Room 220, starting on Sept. 18. Each class will focus on a different subject and has a cost of $15 each week.

The schedule is Sept. 18: English, Sept. 25: reading, Oct. 4: science, Oct. 11: math, and Oct. 17: writing. LCSC will repeat this schedule starting on Oct. 29 with science, Nov. 7: English, Nov. 12: writing, Nov. 27: reading, and Dec. 3: math.

The purpose of the ACT test is to measure a high school student's readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.

Pre-registration is required for the ACT preparation courses. To pre-register, print and fill out the registration form located at www.lcsc.edu/student-counseling and take the form to the LCSC cashier’s window on the main floor of the Administration Building between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. during the weekday. The $15 can be paid there with cash, check, debit, or credit card. Registration can also take place over the phone by calling 208-792-2351 during 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays, but the registration form must be emailed ahead of time to counseling@lcsc.edu or faxed to 208-792-2453. Payments must be made two days prior to the session.

The ACT tests will be offered on Oct. 27 (registration deadline is Sept. 21) and Dec. 8 (registration deadline is Nov. 2). Students can register for the test at www.actstudent.org. Fee waivers are available for students who qualify for free or reduced lunch. Otherwise, the test costs $46.
