From the Guidance Department

Parents and Students,


The process of applying to college can be intimidating, but many students and parents worry about one aspect in particular: the ACT® test. A great ACT® score can open doors to funding and admission. With colleges more selective and expensive than ever, an investment in your student’s ACT® score is an investment in his/her future.


We are offering our students a free ACT@ test at Talawanda High School and the opportunity to partner with TorchPrep, an innovative test prep program that cracks the code on improving ACT® scores. Through strategy-driven training focused on repetition, customization, and motivation, TorchPrep will help your student overcome the ACT®.


TorchPrep has continually yielded outstanding ACT® scores for our students. Whether you’re trying to get into the college of your choice or secure scholarship money, TorchPrep is worth it!


Test: Saturday, 11/16/19, 10AM-2PM

Assembly: TBD (during the school day)
