The Bentonville Public Library is offering free ACT prep classes in January and March 2014. Classes are free thanks to a partnership with the University of Arkansas College Initiative. Students must register for the classes in advance. ACT prep courses can cost a bundle. The library realizes the financial strain that test preparation can have on local families. That is why they are offering a five day ACT prep workshop for free.
There are two sessions for the free ACT classes. Students can register for one or both of the sessions. Teens that are between the ages of 13 and 18 are eligible for classes. Each session runs from 4:15 to 5:15 pm for five days. The first session is January 14-18, 2014 and the second session is March 25-29, 2014. Registration will open up two weeks prior to the first class date. Space is limited and students must commit to attending all five days of class.
In addition to the free test prep course; the library has practice ACT tests available in the Learning Express section of their website. Anyone with a library card can download the practice tests—participation in one of the classes is not required for downloading.
Registration for the free ACT classes will open two weeks prior to the first class of each session. To register, call the Bentonville Public Library at 479-271-6816. The library is located at 405 S. Main Street, Bentonville, Arkansas, 72719.
