ACT Field Trip for 7th Graders
For the past 6 weeks, Mr. Smith has been teaching an ACT Prep class to 7th graders who qualified for the Duke Tip Program that identifies students who are very capable as 7th graders to take the ACT. Each week the class focused on the specific subjects tested on the ACT as well as strategies for taking each test. The goal of the class was to teach them the format as well as provide them with a foresight into the atmosphere of the ACT. Students took the test this past Saturday, February 7. As a reward for their hard work, the students attended a field trip to Campbellsville University. At CU, the seventh graders were able to tour campus, eat lunch in a college cafeteria and they also received a college admissions talk and performance by the CU Singers (a vocal ensemble).

Students who participated in the class are Cecilia Burton, Lexie Cook, Colton Fraley, Erin Gregory, Eva Gover, Konner Hargis (not pictured), Braxton Hewitt, Cameron Hewitt, Bailey Jackson, Trevor Keller, Connor Mayne, Jaxson McAlpin, Jacob Moers, Abby Morgan, Lauren Morgan, Ashlee Mounce, Jordan Pennington, Jett Phillipi, Haylee Ridner, John Thompson, and Sebastian Tingle (not pictured).
