· Outlier’s Advantage: Knoxville In-Home Tutoring will be hosting a Free Mock ACT on Saturday, January 28 at 9 a.m. for all Knox County students. Hosted at UT's Haslam College of Business. Students will get their results before they leave and will get to keep their tests for their review. Limited seating is available, so students need to pre-register to make sure they have a seat. Interested students can sign-up directly from at www.KnoxvilleTutor.com
· If you took the PSAT and have not yet picked up your paper score report and test booklet, these are still available in the Guidance office.
