ACT Practice Test
Sunday, December 4, 1:30 to 4:30 pm

Curvebreakers will administer a full timed and proctored ACT exam, just like the real ACT.  The practice exam will help students get a feel for the timing and stamina required for the real exam.  Each student will get back the graded exam with scoring information as well as a hand written analysis with study suggestions.

Practice Test Results Session
Wednesday, December 21, 7 to 8 pm
Curvebreakers owner Nicholas LaPoma will hand back the exams, explain the results and how to analyze them.  He will advise parents and students on how to choose between the SAT and ACT and how to manage the entire SAT/ACT process for the future.  Parents are encouraged to attend the results session.

Advanced registration for the practice test from the December 4 calendar listing.  Teens who take the practice test and their parents are automatically registered for the results session.
