Cameron University to host ACT Prep Workshop for high school students

Area high school students who want to maximize success on the ACT will have the opportunity to learn strategies and techniques from Chad Cargill, one of the most sought after ACT coaches in America. Cameron University’s Open Doors program will host an ACT Prep Workshop by Cargill on Friday, September 20, from 9 a.m. to Noon in the McCasland Ballroom of the McMahon Centennial Complex, located on the east side of the Cameron campus in Lawton. Parking is available on the east side of the building. The cost is $30, which is payable on-site via cash or check. Study books will also be available for $20. Attendees are asked to reserve a seat by calling 580-581-5581.

Each year, Cargill shares his strategies and techniques with more than 10,000 high school students. The workshop features relevant, practical information on how to increase ACT scores. During the three hour session, Cargill will cover general ideas about the ACT as a whole as well as the individual sections of English, math, reading and science.

For English, Cargill will provide insight into what the test-makers are looking for and the relevant rules needed for success. For the math portion, Cargill will cover formulas and rules needed to answer virtually every question. The reading section will offer three strategies and three methods on how to best take the comprehension section.  The science section will cover common question types and strategies to understand scientific reasoning.

Cargill, a native of Harrah, developed the workshop after taking the ACT 18 times while in high school.  He did so as he realized that he would need scholarships to fund his college education. Knowing that many scholarships were based on ACT scores, he developed techniques and strategies that allowed him to raise his score from 19 to 32. In doing so, he was awarded sufficient scholarship support to allow him to become the first person in his family to earn a college degree.
