ACT workshop set for Sept. 2

WILMINGTON — It’s official: School is back in session. The Class of 2018 has proudly taken its place at the top of the academic hierarchy with the Class of 2019 following closely behind.

While some parents are breathing a sigh of relief knowing their children have gotten back into the school routine, parents of high school juniors and seniors may be feeling the pressure.

Their college-bound juniors are beefing up their transcripts taking college prep and advance placement courses, while college-bound seniors have begun writing college admission essays, completing financial aid forms, and applying for early admission.

Also on the to-do list for students preparing for college is taking the ACT. Scoring well on the ACT allows students an advantage as they submit their scores to colleges as part of the college application process.

In an effort to help area students prepare for this high-stakes test, the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center (SOESC) in Wilmington will once again host a series of “Attacking the ACT” workshops.

Registration remains open for the first workshop scheduled to take place on Saturday, Sept. 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the SOESC, 3321 Airborne Road, Wilmington.

The cost of the workshop is $60 and includes workshop materials, light breakfast refreshments, lunch, and drinks.

Interested parties may register online up until the morning of the workshop by visiting or by following the following link:
