A-List will begin a partnership with Hamilton County, TN this year by providing ACT training to 50 teachers across all 18 high schools in the district. Tennessee has been shifting to use the Common Core State Standards which are designed to increase the level of rigor of instruction, with the goal of providing better learning and more support for students at all levels. Only 16% of TN students met all four ACT College Readiness Benchmark Scores
Many local colleges and universities offer scholarships to students who score over 21 on the ACT, meaning this program could save families thousands of dollars in tuition. The average ACT score for students in TN is 19.7. We’re hoping to help Hamilton County teachers best prepare students to reach and exceed benchmark scores through our ACT professional development.
