Central Texas College (CTC) and Fort Knox high School are teaming up to help high school students prepare for the ACT college admissions test. CTC, which has a site in the Fort Knox Education Center, is providing free preparatory sessions to Fort Knox students before each testing date during the spring. The sessions are held on Thursdays at the high school and led by a CTC professor. 

With each comprehensive session, students will learn test-taking strategies and review lessons in ACT subject matter of math, reading and English. Brian Perry, Fort Knox High School principal said, "The preparatory sessions were part of an effort to increase ACT scores. Students are excited about the testing help and some are asking if they can take more classes." Twenty-three students took part in the first session.

According to Pamela Regester, CTC site director, CTC is working with Fort Knox on a possible long-term relationship to provide dual credit classes. Students at Fort Knox could take college courses at CTC and apply those credits toward high school graduation.
