WOODSTOCK – This fall the Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St., will offer a series of programs intended to help high school students prepare for college.

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission will present three separate programs.

“Breaking Down College Applications” will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday and includes steps and tips for writing essays and searching for scholarships.

“Preparing for the ACT” at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 will teach students what to expect on the test, how to study for it, and the tools that are available to help prepare for the test.

“College Knowledge Jeopardy” will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 4. Covered topics include the types of colleges, paying for one’s education, admissions and picking a major.

Kaplan will be at the library to provide a free ACT Practice Test from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Nov. 9. This proctored test is a great way to get ready for the real thing and know what to expect. Students will receive a complete analysis of their results as well as learn score-raising strategies at the follow-up session at 10 a.m. Nov. 23.

Registration is required for these free programs and can be completed online at www.woodstockpubliclibrary.org or by phone to 815-338-0542.
