ACT Workshop

The Capitol Hill Center’s ACT workshop was created to help prepare high school students, especially in the south Oklahoma City community, for the ACT test while encouraging higher education. Our hope is that this program will help to do the following:

  • Increase overall scores on the ACT test.
  • Provide students with resources and contacts that can help them further their education.
  • Engage parents through the programs we provide here at our center that include ESL, GED, and citizenship courses.
  • Students can register for the course by visiting this link: http://www.occc.edu/coe/act.html
