ACT-SO Columbia is pleased to introduce Junior ACT-SO, a mentoring program for students in grades 7-8 to prepare them to participate in the ACT-SO Columbia Olympics upon entering high school.

Students who submit an application, and are selected by our team of mentors will enjoy the following exclusive benefits:

  • Participation in ACT-SO workshops & master classes.
  • Participation in special ACT-SO trips & events.
  • Gain community service hours for volunteering in the Columbia ACT-SO competition and other local events.

Here are three reasons why your child should participate in Junior ACT-SO:

  1. Your child will be engaged in a positive atmosphere of selected high school applicants and mentors.
  2. We teach your child real “life lessons” that will help them succeed in both the classroom and life.
  3. We’re not just another boring activity. We actually have fun.


At the moment, we have reached maximum capacity for new ACT-SO applicants. Click Here to join our Junior ACT-SO Waiting List.
