New! Online ACT Prep Course

UW- Fond du Lac's Online ACT Prep Course empowers students to prepare for the ACT on their own time. This prep course offers a great option for students who want 24/7 access and a more flexible schedule.

Begin the course by taking an online pre-test to determine what areas you should focus your efforts on and then take up to five months to complete the self-paced course. Even if you need to prepare for the ACT test sooner, you have that flexibility and also the opportunity to continue the prep since you have access anytime within the five months. The course allows you work on modules and receive immediate feedback from quizzes for each of the five test sections. When you have completed the lessons, you’ll take another online assessment that will assess how much you’ve improved.
Tuition: $165
Enrollment is ongoing, contact fdlce@uwc.edu or 920-929-1155 to get started!
The ACT must be scheduled separately by visiting www.actstudent.org

Suzuki Violin

Children learn to play the violin using the ‘Mother Tongue approach’ (also known as the Suzuki Method) developed by Shinichi Suzuki. Parents are an integral part of this method. They are required to attend weekly private and group lessons with their children, learn to play the ‘Twinkle’ variations, play the recorded music daily and practice with their children daily. Each student will receive a weekly private lesson and a group class lesson. There will be recitals and opportunities to play for the public.

Fee for the 26 week program: 30 minute private lessons - $600.00, 45 minute private lessons - $850.00, and 60 minute private lessons - $1,100. Tuition may be paid in four installments. First installment must accompany registration.
