  • Practice ACT

    Wilson offers two practice sessions every year with the help of Kaplan to give our students the opportunity to sit for these exams in a testing environment that is simply for practice to see how they do and what they need to study for the real thing. Scores are not reported to colleges.

    Practice ACT: Friday, November 3 (a teacher planning day, so no school for students), 10 am in the cafeteria.  Arrive before 9:30—it takes some time to get everyone in the door and seated.  The cost is $10.00 at the door.  Students receiving Free/Reduced Lunch may take the practice exam for free. Advance registration at the link below is required.

    Registration and what to bring: http://kaplan.formstack.com/forms/wilson_act_nov2017 
    Practice SAT: Monday, January 29. Details will be available closer to the date.
