Union Student Safety HelpLine
August 2, 2007
Each year, some of Union’s best and brightest students come together to prepare for life after high school during what has become known as Academic Camp for Enrichment.
More than 50 students spent a week at Union Intermediate High School, immersing themselves in math, English and other subjects in preparation for the SAT test. The SAT test is the admittance test required by many private and out-of-state colleges and universities.
“This year, we had the best ACE camp experience that we have ever had,” coordinator Lee Ann Nolen said. “Our instructors did a great job, and we intend to expand the number of participants next year. We hope that as we include more students, our number of National Merit Semi-finalists will increase.”
During the camp, students receive specialized advice from experienced teachers as they prepare for the SAT which could help their chances scoring those big scholarship or getting admitted into the university or college of their choice. The students who attend the camp are invited to attend based on their grade point average and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
The course was designed to help increase the students' chances of increasing their SAT scores and enhance the possibility of National Merit Scholar selection. In addition to being a great honor, National Merit Scholars have access to numerous college scholarships. While not all of the students will reach the level of National Merit Scholar, the training they receive in the mock exams and other preparatory activities will have lasting academic and testing benefits.
