ACT Workshop

At this time, all ACT Workshops for the spring and summer have been canceled. We plan to host fall Workshops in both Manhattan and Olathe. We are closely monitoring the ongoing situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will post any changes to our plans here as the situation requires. 

Fall 2020 Dates Coming Soon!

Please Note: 
Event registration will close 72 business hours before the event. K-State reserves the right to close registration early if an event fills to capacity prior to the 72-business-hour deadline. Refund requests must be made prior to this deadline. In the event of inclement weather, we encourage you to check the K-State website for event updates. Events will be cancelled if K-State is closed. Otherwise, we will email you if an event is cancelled. We ask that you use your best judgment when choosing to travel to campus in inclement weather. If an event is cancelled, K-State will make an effort to reschedule the event to a later date and your registration may be transferred.

If the Workshop were to be canceled due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) students and guests will receive a full refund for the event

Improve your score

This class consists of five hours of instruction on the four ACT subject tests. Students gain insight into the test's content and format while learning practical test-taking strategies for maximizing their test scores. Students learn how to control the test rather than letting it control them! ACT's "Preparing for the ACT" is used in this class in addition to our strategies.

This class covers general ideas about the test as a whole, as well as specific strategies for each sub-test:

  • English – Learn what the ACT test-writers are testing you on and how to approach types of questions
  • Math – Learn what problem-solving skills and math skills you need and how you will be tested
  • Reading – Learn your best method for doing well on ACT reading
  • Science – Learn common passage and question types and what’s really required to do well on this test

Don't forget to bring a calculator and an extra pencil with you!


You'll attend a special morning program with sessions to learn more about financial aid, scholarship programs, and general K-State information. At lunch, you will have a chance to eat with your student and discuss the morning session. Parents will be on their own after lunch.
