Applerouth Tutoring Services is offering SAT and ACT prep classes and mock tests at Lambert High School and online!
Motivated students that register for this interactive group setting will learn the major SAT and ACT concepts and strategies needed to master the exam. As a participant, in the classroom or virtually, you will receive test guides and session notes that help simplify the studying process. Additionally, you will receive detailed mock test results that allow us to track improvement, and enable us to alter lesson plans based on class-wide results.
There are two test prep options:
- SAT and ACT prep classes: The test prep classes include 3 mock tests, 18 hours of instruction and all student materials. Click here for more information on the prep classes, including cost.
- SAT and ACT mock tests: Full-length proctored mock tests enable you to see where you stand on the test, without the pressure of an official score. Afterwards, a comprehensive score report will help you target areas for improvement and plan for your real test accordingly. Click here more information on the mock tests, including cost.
To register, go to www.applerouth.com/signup and enter the event code located on the prep class flyer or the mock test flyer above.
We know that many parents and students are interested in visiting colleges on their own. Juniors are given four days which count as field trips to make these school visits throughout the year. Juniors must print out the College Visit Form and get the required signatures from their teachers, counselor, and principal before they go on the trip in order for it to count as an excused absence. They must also get a signature from someone at the college during the visit and turn the completed form into the Lambert attendance office when they return. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your child's counselor.
In order to participate in college athletics and receive athletically based financial aid, you must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center and meet academic and amateurism eligibility standards. In order to register with the eligibility center, you must have a valid U.S. Social Security Number and pay a $60 eligibility center fee. Please visit the NCAA Eligibility website for more information.
Below is a list of steps to take during your junior year to make sure you are eligible to participate in college athletics.
- Register with the eligibility center.
- Make sure you are still on course to meet core-course requirements (verify you have the correct number of core courses and that the core courses are on your high school's list with the eligibility center).
- After your junior year, send a copy of your transcript to the NCAA Clearinghouse.
- If you have attended any other high schools, make sure a transcript is sent to the eligibility center from each high school.
- When taking the ACT or SAT, request test scores to be sent to the eligibility center (the code is "9999"). No test scores will be accepted unless they come directly from the testing agency.
- Begin your amateurism questionnaire.
