FAQs

Why does the ACT matter?

ACT (or SAT) scores are generally the most important factor universities use in determining scholarship offers. The test scores are second only to GPA in terms of admissions decisions. A good ACT score can mean thousands (or tens of thousands) in scholarships. By scoring a 21 on the ACT, students qualify for the Millennium Scholarship ($10,000). By scoring a 22+, students often qualify for small scholarships at most universities. By scoring 26+, many schools offer mid-level scholarships (thousands to tens of thousands of dollars at most universities, and by scoring a 30+, many students qualify for full tuition and full-ride scholarships (potentially over $100,000 in savings if attending an expensive private university).

What’s considered a good ACT score?

The ACT is scored on a scale of 1-36. The national average is around a 20-21 most years. Nevada’s average has been in the 17 range. To be guaranteed admission to UNLV for example, a student can have either a 3.0 core GPA (Math, English, Science, & Social Studies classes only) or a 22 on the ACT. So a student needs either a solid GPA or a score significantly above the state average (and above the national average) to be admitted to UNLV. If students have both the GPA and test score, they’ll earn additional scholarships. 

How much does ACT prep improve scores?

The weekend prep camps are averaging 3-7 point improvements per student. That’s the difference between scoring in the 50th percentile, and scoring in the 80th percentile. Or for students who already start out above average, it could be the difference in the 80th percentile, and the Ivy League level 96th percentile.

Is Test Prep really worth it?

It depends. If a student doesn’t plan to attend college, or if his/her family can pay full tuition price at the university of their choice without a hassle, there may not be a need. But if you’re like the majority of families who can’t imagine how they’d pay the insane $50k+ in annual tuition charged by many private universities, test prep can be a worthwhile investment. As our instructor Ryan explained: “The highlights of my career are when students send me excited emails and messages to report their amazing test scores and college admissions letters. But some of my favorite messages are from parents thanking me for helping their children earn full-ride scholarships. One parent whose child received an amazing scholarship to a California school told me: ‘She got a full ride scholarship worth $160k! We’re taking her college fund and spending it on a fabulous cruise!’”

Dear Parent or Guardian:nurse

Influenza (flu) season is upon us and flu activity is occurring statewide. There has been a laboratory confirmed cases of flu in Elko County, along with an increase in children ill with similar symptoms. People of all ages can get sick with the flu, but particularly school-aged children experience high rates of the illness. Typically, symptoms of flu include a fever above 100 °F with cough, sore throat, chills, malaise, and body aches. Below are recommendations to help prevent further spread:

 

1. The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated every year.

• All people 6 months and older need a flu vaccine each year.

• Babies cannot get vaccinated until they are 6 months old. It is critical that people who live with or care for children, especially infants younger than 6 months, get vaccinated. (This is called “cocooning” -- when you protect babies by having those around them get vaccinated).

 

2. Be hygienic to avoid the spread of illness.

• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. (Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.)

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. If soap and water are not available, an alcohol-based hand rub may be used.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs are spread that way.

 

3. If you or your child is sick:

•     Stay home until you or your child’s fever is gone for at least 24 hours, without the use of  fever reducing medications.

       Please go to your primary care physician for evaluation. If you get sick with flu, antiviral drugs can be used to treat your illness.
