The District is excited to announce a new opportunity for our students
considering college after graduation. Per the Ohio Department of
Education, all juniors are required to take a college and career
readiness test. At Riverside that test for juniors is the ACT
on February 20, 2019, which is free.
In order to assist students in their preparation for the ACT, Riverside is
offering the option of an online ACT prep program. The online program
is offered through ACT and is a self-paced, individualized program that allows
students to identify their weak areas and then provides practice to strengthen
those areas. Studies have shown that students who prepare for these tests by
focusing on areas of content where they have weakness and practicing
test-taking strategies can improve their scores. With improvement, students may
be able to consider a whole new range of colleges that otherwise would have
been out of reach and possibly access scholarships.
Riverside is offering this program - to students in grades 9-12 - at a reduced
rate of $20.00. Upon enrollment, students will have access to the program
for one year. Spaces in the program are limited and are available on a
first-come, first-served basis. Interested students should bring $20.00 (cash
or check made payable to the Riverside Campus) to Mrs. Maczuzak in the guidance
For more information, students and parents can visit the ACT website at www.act.org and search ACT
online prep. Questions should be emailed to Jill Maczuzak, Guidance
Secretary, at Jill.Maczuzak@riversideschools.net.
