Students needing college planning for SAT and ACT are in luck. FC students grades 7-12 and parents are invited to attend an informational meeting about SAT and ACT testing hosted by and located at the College Planning and Tutorial Center, March 25, 2015. At this gathering, guardians and students will be informed about the standardized testing processes and the necessary steps to insuring optimal success.
Though FC hosts a similar annual meeting in the fall, the College Planning and Tutorial Center will be providing various details not otherwise available to the FC community. Students currently in the college application process are highly encouraged to attend.
Academic Advisor Michelle Warkentin says that students who attend the meeting will have the opportunity to gain valuable insight from experienced educational professionals.
“It is a good idea for students to attend this meeting to find out more about college from professionals who know the ins and outs of applying to college,” Warkentin said. “They will present valuable information regarding high school classes needed to take for college acceptance and helpful tips about the application process. This is a free event and a great way to get a head start on all things related to college.

Junior Vanessa Shubin recommends that students attend the session in order to avoid any test day mishaps.
“An important reason to go to the meeting would be so that you are prepared for test day,” Shubin said. “One thing to remember before taking the SAT is that they don’t provide calculators. There were a few people who forgot theirs at home when I went and I’m sure they didn’t have a fun time.”
Senior Summer Villanueba has already taken the SAT however, she advises juniors and seniors who have not yet taken the test to go to the meeting in order to become familiarized with the testing process.
“Going to the Pre-SAT planning tests and getting lots of practice is good because it prepares you for future testing,” Villanueba said. “Colleges looks at all these tests and determine where your going to be, so it makes sense to study up hard so that you make a great impression. The extra practice does help to, because then you can improve your scores and go through problems easier.”
As students determine college planning for SAT, ACT, they are encouraged to check out the College Planning and Tutorial Center online or attend the seminar.
College Planning and Tutorial Center is located at 6729 N. Palm, Ste. 103 Fresno, CA 93704. For more information email academic advisor Michelle Warkentin at [email protected].
