We offer a free ten-week ACT prep class (in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago) taught by University of Chicago students.
The application for our winter 2017 ACT course is now open! The application will close on Friday, December 16th. Applicants will find out whether or not they were accepted on Tuesday, December 27th.
More information about the course is available beneath the form. Please contact our Director, Sophia Vojta, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Format of the class
Week 1 (Saturday, January 7th): Full-length diagnostic (practice) exam
Weeks 2-9 (subsequent Saturdays-no class on Thanksgiving, so 7 classes in total): Class sessions (strategy and content)
Week 10 (Saturday, March 11th): Full-length final (practice) exam
Class meets from 10 AM - 2:30 PM each Saturday. Each of the four multiple-choice subjects of the ACT is covered:
English (10 - 11 am)
Math (11 am - 12 pm)
Break (12 - 12:30 pm)
Reading (12:30 - 1:30 pm)
Science (1:30 - 2:30 pm)
Each subject is taught by a different teacher. All teachers are University of Chicago undergraduate volunteers who have scored well on the exam and received training from experienced members of our program. Class size is approximately 20. Students are divided on the basis of their diagnostic score.
The class itself is completely free. We do, however, ask that students purchase a single textbook (made by the Barron's test prep company) that is available in bookstores, libraries, and on Amazon. Practice tests and problems are taken from this book.
Once accepted into the course, if the cost of this book poses a problem for you and your family, we are happy to work with you to make other arrangements.
