College readiness conference at Georgia Southwestern

Posted: Updated:
AMERICUS, Ga. -

   Georgia Southwestern State University and East Georgia State College are co-hosting a conference on college readiness October 17-18 in Americus.

   The conference is designed to bring together educators from public schools, technical colleges, and University System of Georgia institutions to explore ways of ensuring that high school graduates, especially those from rural parts of the state, are prepared to succeed in college.

   A recent report by ACT states that only 28 percent of students that took the ACT exam were college ready based on minimum scores on all areas of the exam.  Roughly two-thirds were ready in at least one area.

   Georgia Southwestern and East Georgia reached out to high schools and higher education institutions throughout Georgia to be a part of the conference.  Approximately 100 people are expected to participate.

   For additional information the number to call is (229) 931-2322 or email kelly.mccoy@gsw.edu.
