McKinney, Texas — For the past several years, McKinney ISD has offered its high school students a comparatively low-cost opportunity to prepare for college entrance exams. In October, the district offered a ZAPS PSAT/SAT session that filled up quickly. Now, MISD continues the effort by hosting a ZAPS ACT one-day test preparation seminar on Monday, January 7, 2019.

Presented by Doorway to College Foundation (D2CF), the seminar offers professional test preparation for $64—a cost that has been discounted by ZAPS and is substantially lower than some of the other test prep offerings available on the market.

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 sub-tests
  • 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!
