Class is limited! Six weeks to more confidence and a better ACT score! High test scores on standardized tests are still an avenue for scholarship money and college admission. In this class students will learn the ACT’s “evil tricks” and practice test taking strategies designed to improve their overall ACT score.
This ACT Prep Class is taught by Wendy Kapusta on Saturdays at our main office in Auburn Hills starting on September 29th and running through November 3rd.

Portrait Day for each Homeschool Connections Campus is listed below. Package information will be available at each campus.
Each student will be photographed for our yearbook and receive a complimentary student ID card good for discounts all around town.
