     Designed to assist high school students in developing skills to improve ACT scores, the prep course will emphasize mathematics and English.
     “This is a wonderful opportunity for students who want help with their math and English skills,” said Tom Dawsey, recruiting and marketing manager. “Our instructors also do a great job of giving students tips on test-taking skills that can help improve their scores.”
     The courses in Hammond and Walker will be taught by Amy Gibson, will take place from 5 to 7 p.m., and will cost $250 with all materials included. The Hammond course will be held Mondays beginning Feb. 27 through March 26, while the Walker course will be held Thursdays, beginning March 8 through April 12.
