ACT Prep Options at Mother McAuley

We're very excited to be endorsing three programs for our junior students: two traditional nine week programs and a three-hour speed-reading program.  We have partnered with Brother Rice, therefore all three programs will be available to students at either school, on varying days/times that best fit the students' busy schedules.  What's exciting, you ask?!  All of our junior students that are Chicago residents (60% of the junior class!) will have the opportunity to take one of the traditional courses for FREE!!  The Title 1 Program, in collaboration with Chicago Public Schools, will fund the ACT prep course for all McAuley and Br. Rice juniors who reside in a Chicago zip code.  Below are details about the three programs:
  1. Excel Edge:  traditional 9 week course, running from Jan through April, offered to MMcA or BR juniors for $325
  2. Academic Approach: traditional 10 week course, running from Jan through April, offered to only Chicago residing students of MMcA or BR for FREE
  3. ACT Up Speed Reading:  3 hour supplemental course designed to raise the reading speeds of high school students, offered to MMcA or BR juniors for $189

Registration will begin November 20th and close December 20thWe have outlined the course information in a detailed letter that has been mailed home to junior parents.

We are thrilled about this opportunity, hoping our students take full advantage.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Nikki Carey at ncarey@mothermcauley.org.
