GOHS is hosting two weekend boot camps run by Catalyst Prep.  The information is below. These are designed to take early so you have a focus for your practice, or close to the exam for last minute strategies and tips (plus some brushup).  


It is highly recommended that you have finished (or at least are currently enrolled in) Algebra 2 before taking them.  Otherwise, the math section is very difficult.  Please use the link below to access the flyer.

The SAT and ACT are boring exams, but learning to ace them does not have to be. At Catalyst, we take the actual SAT and ACT every time they’re given, and we pass our expertise to students with patience, understanding, and a welcome sprinkling of humor and creativity.


Catalyst’s two-day SAT and ACT Bootcamps arm students with go-to strategies for every question they’ll face on the day of the test so they can march into the test with confidence, momentum, and every key strategy fresh in their mind.

THE DATE FOR THE FIRST AP READINESS WORKSHOP IS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2017

 

TRIP SLIPS ARE DUE BY SEPTEMBER 8, 2017

FLYER, TRIP SLIP AND LINK ATTACHED

 

Last year GOHS students attended the AP Readiness program at UCR in order to receive supplemental, supportive instruction in their respective AP/IB courses.  

The intent of the workshops is to provide instructional support to AP and IB students in STEM courses such as:

  • Biology, Chemistry, Env. Science and Physics
  • Calculus, Statistics, Computer Science Principles
  • English Language and English Literature

The workshops run one Saturday each month leading up to the AP exams.  They are all different, and they are organized to match the curricular development in each subject.  

 

A student may go to just one, a few, or all eight workshops.  A student who attends all of them would receive 32 additional instructional support hours - FREE OF CHARGE.

 

The district provides busing for students, although students can also just show up to UCR.  The process is:

 

Step One:  

Student must register for workshop.  Here is the lnk.  http://www.apr.ucr.edu  Once a student registers for the first one, he/she doesn't need to register again this year.

 

Step Two:

If student wishes to ride the bus, he/she downloads the trip slip attached, fills it out, and returns it to his or her AP teacher, or to Mrs. Treto in the SPIRIT center.  Students may also get themselves to UCR as long as they arrive no later than 8:45 a.m.  They must be picked up in this case  at 2:00 p.m.

 

PLEASE REGISTER ASAP SO CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE

 

For more information please contact January King at jking@tvusd.k12.ca.us or Deeann Treto at dtreto@tvusd.k12.ca.us

There will be a change, and I think an improvement, to the FASFA process for the Class of 2017.  I have attached a link to a Forbes article that discusses the change and how it can impact families financially, and how it can help in applying to colleges you can actually afford.

At the bottom of the article there are some great links regarding colleges as well.

Happy reading.
