Dear A-TECH 11th grade students and parents,
Thank you for all your patience and perseverance through the first semester of A-TECH’s virtual learning. The staff hopes you have a very restful two-week break. As we look towards 2021, 11th graders have two important exams coming up (PSAT on January 26 and ACT on February 23). These exams may be canceled or rescheduled due to COVID restrictions; nevertheless, we want to prepare students to do their best so that they can increase their college scholarship and acceptance opportunities.
ACT Online Practice
CERT ACT Practice Questions
A-TECH 11th graders have taken CERT Practice ACT exams five times now. Students should have a strong understanding of their strengths and areas for growth. CERT provides videos on each question on the practice ACTs as well as general concept review videos. A-TECH 11th graders will take CERT once more in February in preparation for the ACT. See the attachment for how students can access their personalized review questions videos.
