ELLISVILLE– Ninety-one high school students spent four days at Jones County Junior College’s ACT Prep Camp to get some tips on how to take the college placement test. The opportunity for academic enhancement was led by JCJC instructors, Lucy Flowers, Kerri Pippen, Emily Sones, Tim Morris and South Jones High School science instructor, Lily Trest.
South Jones senior, Caleb Pitts said he attended the camp because he wants to improve his score to receive more scholarships.
“I have taken the ACT test twice and I have received the exact same overall and individual subject score. I’m so close to making a 30 which will allow me to stay in the Presidential dorms at USM and receive more scholarship money,” said Pitts.
The Ellisville native said the math tips have been very effective strategies which should help him raise his score. Students also received “The Princeton Review” ACT prep book with practice tests in addition to the instructors test taking strategies.
