Attention 11th Grade Students and Parents!

Dear Parents & Guardians: 

The ACT is a North Carolina state-mandated assessment for all 11th graders. Guilford County Schools and The Academy at Smith provides an ACT Prep course to support our scholars in increasing their performance on the ACT. The course offers support for those scholars who require more directed instruction. The ACT will be administered on Tuesday, March 1, 2022.  

 To accommodate all of our scholars who need preparation and enrichment, we offer the following opportunities. Please note: Parents must provide transportation. 

  • Cohort A – Mondays & Wednesdays (Before school 8:15 am – 9:15 am or Afterschool 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm) 
  • Cohort B – Tuesdays & Thursdays (Before school 8:15 am – 9:15 am or Afterschool 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm) 
  • Saturdays – February 5, 12, 19, and 26 from 9 am – 11 am 
  • Your scholar needs to fill out the Google Form at this link:  

 You will be notified of the start of this additional support. At this time, your child can be in this tutorial program online via Canvas once they have completed the Google Form. The ACT Prep course will be managed through Canvas with Academy at Smith teachers as tutors.
