One point can make the difference! Remind students to register for ACT workshops by August 28.

Did you know students who participate in any form of ACT Prep earn an average of 1-2 additional points on the exam? Those 1-2 points could be what it takes to earn a 21 for the TN HOPE Scholarship -- or maybe an even greater college opportunity. If you work with (or are a parent of) 9th and 10th grade SCS students, encourage them to register for a FREE ACT prep workshop designed by the test strategy pros at Jane Ross Tutoring! Registration closes August 28 for the first workshop. Bus transportation is available for participating students. View the flyer .

SCS believes in supporting our new teachers!
