What are the Benefits of Participating in ACT-SO?
The ACT-SO program is intended to be a learning experience, first and foremost. The focus of a viable and effective local ACT-SO program is on enrichment and mentorship. Students work with mentors who help them develop projects in their chosen category throughout the program year.
The DuPage County ACT-SO program also provides ACT-SO students with many enrichment opportunities, including targeted workshops, college and career readiness programs, and guest speakers.
