Best High School in Kansas
On Saturday, February 28th, we will be conducting an ACT Workshop. We have hired a special consultant to come to Kansas City and work with students. The event will take place at the El Centro Building, 650 Minnesota Ave., Kansas City, KS 66102. Registration begins at 8:30am, and the event will be from 9:00am-2:00pm (A light breakfast and a full lunch will be provided). We have partitioned this private consultant for 20 students to attend on our expense. This is a $50.00 value that guarantees to improve ACT preparation, free of charge. We will offer each of the USD 500 high schools four seats at this workshop for free. We ask that you identify four juniors at Sumner Academy who you believe will take advantage of this opportunity.
We will also have a parent section at the ACT workshop that will cover financial aid, scholarships, admissions processes, campus resources, etc. We ask that while identifying students, that you inform them about the parent workshops. These workshops will cost the family $15.00 per parent. In addition, we have capacity for 10 more students at the workshop. If you have other students who may be interested and would be willing to pay the $50.00, please allow them to register with you.
