Monday, December 9, 2019

McKinney, Texas — McKinney ISD continues to offer its high school students a comparatively low-cost opportunity to prepare for college entrance exams with a ZAPS® ACT one-day test preparation seminar on January 6, 2020.

Presented by Doorway to College Foundation (D2CF), the exclusive provider of ZAPS Focused Test Prep, the seminar offers professional test preparation for $75—a cost that has been discounted by ZAPS and is substantially lower than some of the other test prep offerings available on the market.

“McKinney ISD is proud to continually offer test preparation to open up opportunities for students,” said Marita Cleaver, MISD coordinator of advanced academics and LOTE. “Our focus is on student success, and we strive vigorously toward that goal each day. College choice, affordability and access to exciting careers is what makes our country the best place to live and have a fulfilling career. To support our students, we offer these courses at an affordable rate and have scholarships for eligible students available, so that every child has the chance to an open door to any college of their choice.”

According to ZAPS, in an independent study involving 576 students who took the ACT before and after attending a ZAPS ACT seminar, more than 84 percent of those students increased their ACT scores.

In the five-hour ACT seminar, students will—
—learn tips to improve in all subtests
—practice strategies to eliminate wrong choices
—take short practice tests that mirror the real test experience
—reduce test anxiety and gain confidence
—receive extensive materials for home practice
—and much more!
