ACT Ready is a free ACT preparation program designed to challenge high school juniors and seniors in the Beloit community with the rigors of the ACT exam, utilizing an online testing program, college student mentors for support, and regularly scheduled workshops and activities.

Motivating students to do well on the ACT exam is the ultimate goal, leading to better Act scores, more college selection opportunities, and more potential scholarships for our local young people. 

ACT Ready will be a collaborative project, led by Beloit College pre-college staff, to provide 40 juniors and seniors with intensive, ongoing ACT preparation and support to develop test-taking strategies, confidence and knowledge to maximize ACT scores.  Bringing together four organizations: Help Yourself-Pre-Collegiate, Upward Bound, the Minority Excellence Organization (MEO), and Emmanuel Baptist Church Youth Group; ACT Ready will motivate and engage students with workshops, one-on-one assistance, practice tests and incentives to improve ACT test scores. First generation students, low-income students, and students of color are encouraged to apply, but ANY student can apply with junior or senior status. Students who are interested in applying should click here for more information and to download an application.
