William Carey University will offer its third annual ACT Camp for rising junior and senior high school students with a desire to attend college. The free camp focuses on helping qualified students reach an ACT score of 21 or higher. Camps will be offered in Hattiesburg and at the Tradition campus in Biloxi. 
 
The camp at the Tradition campus will be held Tuesday, May 30 through Friday, June 2. The Tradition campus is located at 19640 Hwy. 67, Biloxi, MS 39532.

Each camp will provide test-taking strategy sessions, small group instruction, study materials, and snacks. Students also will receive college scholarship information and professional education information.
