Kaplan K12 Learning Services Partners With United Way For Southeastern Michigan For ACT Prep

Stocks in this article: WPO

Kaplan K12 Learning Services has partnered with the United Way for Southeastern Michigan to help prepare over 4,000 students in seven Detroit–area high schools for the ACT exam and college admissions process.

These “turnaround schools,” where significant investment is being made to increase graduation rates and college attendance, are part of the United Way for Southeastern Michigan’s Turnaround Initiative and include:

  • Central Collegiate Academy, Detroit
  • East Detroit High School, East Pointe
  • Hamtramck High School, Hamtramck
  • Harper Woods High School, Harper Woods
  • Lincoln Senior High School, Van Dyke-Warren
  • Madison High School, Madison Heights
  • Melvindale High School, Melvindale

“Through this partnership with the United Way for Southeastern Michigan, we will provide access to high-quality college readiness programs to open more doors and opportunities for students across the Detroit area,” said Kathy Nordmeyer, executive director of Kaplan K12 Learning Services. “We share a common mission of improving the success of underserved students, which is fundamental to our nation’s economic and social success. We look forward to working closely with the United Way for Southeastern Michigan and the schools’ parents, teachers and administrations, as they prepare their students for college.”

Through the partnership, Kaplan will teach ACT classes to all juniors, and provide sophomores and juniors with access to ACT On Demand, the company’s award-winning interactive online program that students can access 24/7. Both programs offer personalized instruction, multiple practice tests and a host of materials to prepare students for the critical college admissions exam. Additionally, Kaplan will offer its College 101 workshop to parents of juniors where they can learn the key elements of the admissions process. The elements include the importance of standardized exams like the ACT and SAT, how to navigate the financial aid process, and how parents can help their children write compelling personal essays. Kaplan will provide professional development workshops and ACT foundational coaching for 10th grade teachers at East Detroit High School.
