Our students and sponsors understand the importance of preparing for the ACT, the standardized test many universities ask for from students in their applications. Since for many of our Future Leaders Academy scholars English is their second language, they feel compelled to put forth more effort than the average student to make sure they obtain scores that are competitive.
The first weekend in February, Ms. Anita Marcus, member of the Athena Giving Circles, gave her time to prepare our students for the ACT. During the weekend, our scholars received eight hours of intensive preparation. On February 11th, the students took their ACT test and have markedly improved their scores. Thank you, Ms. Marcus, for your instrumental aid in getting our scholars to a new level.
