College Bound?

Jump Start Your College Plans at the Des Plaines Public Library!

Okay, it’s not a trip to the beach, but summertime is the best time to get started on your future college plans. Kaplan Test Prep & Admissions is offering a series of free college admissions programs at the library this summer. Program topics range from finding the right college for you to dealing with financial aid to writing an effective college admissions essay.

High school juniors are required to take the ACT test, but do you know that some colleges require SAT scores? Kaplan is conducting a combination ACT/SAT practice test and an ACT vs. SAT strategy workshop. Practice tests are arguably the best way to prepare for either test. The ACT/SAT practice test lets you compare the tests side by side. Be sure to sign up for both the practice test and the workshop to get the most out of this program.
