The Preston School Board is trying to prepare its high school students for the next step in their educational pursuits. The district is offering an ACT prep class beginning Feb. 10, at 7-7:30 a.m. The class will be taught Mondays and Wednesdays until April 30. The cost for the class is $25.

The high school also has a dual credit program and Advanced Placement classes (AP) that are not being utilized by students as much as the district would like, said school board chairman Fred Titensor.

Madison Jensen, a junior at Preston High, studies Monday morning in a concurrent enrollment history class. Seated behind her are Katie Lower and Kyle Lords.

“We have had a lot of college enrollment opportunities, but they aren’t being utilized as well as they should,” Titensor said. “The cost of college credits at the high school level are affordable, the cost of college credits in college are astronomical.”

Cost per credit through the Preston High School is anywhere from $65 to $75.
