    Workshops are from 7:45 - 2:00. If students attend the entire workship and take the ACT, they will be refunded the cost of both the ACT and the workshop.

    ACT & WORKSHOP FEE REFUND POLICY


    As an incentive for HHS students to do their best on the ACT, the student may receive a full refund of her/his registration fees for up to 3 different ACT assessments and the corresponding ACT workshops in which the student participates during her/his high school career. In order to qualify for this refund, the student must participate fully in both the workshop and the ACT. Refund checks will be issued to the student from the office several weeks following testing.
