ACT II Classes

ACT II classes meet two days a week and run through ASP I & II (2:35-4:15).

The difference between ACT II classes and clubs is that attendance is required for these classes and students will receive a grade for the course. Students who wish to participate in ACT II classes can sign up at the activities fair or on the board outside the cafeteria during lunches.

Classes start September 27th. Students can register through Thursday, October, 11th
