ACT-SO, a program by the NAACP is a student enrichment program that culminates in a local and national competition where students compete for awards, and prizes totaling over $50,000.

Each week throughout the school year, students from various high schools throughout New Jersey meet with advisors at a central location where they are mentored in 26 of the ACT-SO academic disciplines which includes sciences, humanities, performing arts, visual arts and business.

The ACT-SO program centers around the dedication and commitment of community volunteers and business leaders; to serve as mentors and coaches to promote academic and artistic excellence among students of African-American descent.
