TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — Cherokee Nation Foundation is offering a free ACT Boot Camp to Native American students preparing for the national exam.

The one-day course will be held on Saturday, April 1, at Carl Albert State College in Sallisaw from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The deadline to register is March 30 at noon.  

“This is our first in-person event since the pandemic, and we can’t wait to see our students,” said Janice Randall, executive director for Cherokee Nation Foundation. “These boot camps are such a valuable asset when students are preparing for the exam, and we hope it helps alleviate some of the worry about the unknown. Whether it’s a student’s first attempt or an effort to increase their score, this boot camp will help them to achieve their highest possible score.”

ACT Boot Camp is led by Mastery-Prep, an organization dedicated to building students’ confidence on test day by providing essential test-taking strategies and skills. Instructors will guide students through content strategies for all four subjects on the ACT and administer mini-tests to help students identify their strengths and weaknesses.

The course is offered to Native American students in grades 10-12, with preference given to Cherokee Nation students.

Students interested in the course can call the foundation at 918-207-0950 or apply online at www.cherokeenationfoundation.org.
