ACT and SAT Prep Sessions

College bound high school seniors are anxious to receive a letter congratulating them for being accepted into their college or university.

 

College and Universities all have an expectation of the caliber of student they accept. 

 

A student's ACT/SAT score largely affects whether he or she will be accepted into the college of his or her choice. 

 

Our ACT/SAT tutorials help students prepare for these rigorous assessments. 

 

Students should begin taking college entry exams in the spring of their junior year or fall of their senior year. 

 

STUDENTS MUST HAVE A PRELIMINARY ACT or SAT SCORE BEFORE COLLEGE PREP TUTORIALS BEGIN.
