UMSL Bridge Program “Bridge to the ACT” Summer Intensive is a week-long Summer workshop for rising seniors.
The “Bridge to the ACT” Summer Intensive provides in-depth sectional analysis and a tactical learning approach that will assist students in managing the stress associated with taking the ACT test and produce better outcomes. Students will be equipped with exceptional test-taking strategies, ACT books and resources, and hands-on instruction.
The Bridge Program remains committed to providing essential programming aimed at meeting the needs of our students that will assist them throughout their educational journey. We understand that finding the right fit for college is one of the most critical decisions that you will make as a student. In addition, your performance on college entrance exams is a major contributing factor in the college acceptance process. In light of these facts, we launched the “Bridge to the ACT” Summer Intensive as a means to support our rising seniors in their college entrance exam preparations.
The two sessions of this week-long workshop will provide in-depth sectional analysis and a tactical learning approach that will help to manage the stress associated with taking the ACT test and produce better outcomes. By the end of this course, you will be equipped with exceptional test-taking strategies that will result in increased levels of confidence for test day!
