4-H Grows Citizenship

A.S.P.I.R.E. online Classes

ASPIRE (ACT Supplemental Preparation In Rural Education) is designed to bridge deficits in rural high school students’ performance on the ACT College Entrance Examination in order to increase the number of students pursuing higher education.
As a high school student, preparing for a college entrance exam like the ACT can be pretty difficult. N. C. Cooperative Extension 4-H Agents have teamed up to offer online courses to prepare high school students for the ACT College Entrance Examination through the ASPIRE program. This program is open to any high school student (public, private, or homeschool) and will be available in the fall.
