Test Prep for ACT & SAT
(BTW…these are all FREE)
1. Test Prep Seminar: The Princeton Review – This seminar is hosted by AISD during the summer and if taken on your own it would cost hundreds of dollars. For additional details (i.e. when, where and how to sign up) check with your guidance counselor or COOL advisor in late February or early March. Priority seating is for sophomores in AP courses. If space is available, juniors may also sign up.
2. Check the AHS/CHS LRC website
