The Barrington High School ACT-SAT Preparation Program offers review courses for juniors to accommodate the large number of students taking college entrance exams for the first time. The program includes two eight-week sessions: one winter, one spring. Each session includes classes in English & Reading Comprehension and Math & Science Reasoning. The classes provide 16 hours of intensive review in each subject area and include test-taking strategies, using practice ACT and SAT samples. A student may register for one or both subject reviews in either the winter or the spring session. The cost, including materials, is $200.00 for one course or $400.00 for both courses payable by check to BHS ACT-SAT Prep Program and mailed with the student's registration form to Barrington High School, ACT-SAT Prep Program, 616 West Main Street, Barrington, IL 60010. The program is designed to prepare juniors to take an ACT and/or an SAT offered in the early or late spring. Test dates can be found by accessing the College Entrance Exams link in the left-hand column. Test prep curriculum details and requirements are outlined in the Program Overview, which can be downloaded by clicking on the above link. Registration forms for both winter and spring sessions can also be downloaded and printed by clicking on the respective links at the bottom of the page. Program confirmations and classroom assignments are emailed to both parents and students in December before the Winter Break.
