COLUMBUS, Ind. — Columbus East Junior Savannah Tunny will soon be taking the ACT college entrance exam because she wants the practice before taking it as a senior, when it matters most.
Her goal is to be accepted into the college of her choice.
Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. is trying to encourage more students like Savannah in Grades 8-11 to prepare for college. It is paying nearly $60,000 to cover the costs for the ACT and two other college-readiness exams. That's nearly twice as much as the district set aside last year when it first funded college-prep tests.
