A new ACT preparation course is now available for college-bound deaf or hard-of-hearing high school students. The RIT/NTID ACT Test Prep Course will be held 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., Saturdays, April 29 – June 3 (except May 27) at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
Classes are limited to 20 students and will be taught in English and sign language by certified instructors. Students will have the opportunity to take practice tests, as well as register for the June 10 ACT test, which assesses students’ general educational development in English, math, reading and science.
Students must bring the current edition of The Real ACT Prep Guide, available online for less than $20, a calculator, and their own lunch or money to purchase food.
