Background

Since 2005, the Denver Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.’s Educational Development Committee has hosted a free ACT Prep Workshop for high school students. The ACT exam is required for admission to most universities and colleges throughout the country. High school students meet at a convenient location to learn techniques in ACT preparation from a certified ACT Prep tutor in Math, Science, Reading, and English portions of the ACT exam. On the first and final weekends, students participate in practice ACT exams.

Workshop Content

Students will participate in a pre-test, a post-test, and receive intensive review of ACT Prep study and test taking techniques. Additionally, students will be provided with tips on how to succeed in a college environment. On the date of the post test, parents may participate in an informational session about preparing students for college while students are taking the post test.
ACTPrep_Newspaper Article
“I attended the free ACT Workshops given by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority for two years. My composite on my first practice test was 17. I am now a senior and my composite is 27. I am grateful that the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority cared enough to invest in my future.”
Arista Ware, Former Workshop Participant

Contributions – How You Can Help

Contributions through monetary donations and sponsorships allow us to continue to provide this free service to traditionally “disadvantaged” students. Without this program, many of the participants would not have the means to afford an expensive program. Private ACT preparation courses cost between $1200 – $1500, but we offer this opportunity at no cost to students.

The Denver Alumnae Chapter provides lunch for the students each weekend, as well as a FREE copy of the “Cracking the ACT” review book, published by The Princeton Review, which typically costs approximately $20 in book stores. Your contributions WILL make an impact.

  • $100 will provide 5 review books for students
  • $500 dollars will provide 25 review books OR lunch for 100 students for one Saturday
  • $1000 dollars will provide 50 review books for students OR lunch for up to 200 students for one Saturday
  • $1500 will help defray the cost of professionally trained ACT instructors and practice exam scoring.
