  • Increasing test scores for students who want to pursue a college education
  • Qualifying students for grants/scholarships when they’ve ruled out higher education due to costs 
  • Opening doors for students who thought their test scores wouldn’t qualify them for higher education 

Participants learn proven test-taking strategies that work.

But don't worry! Incorporating this curriculum doesn't have to take up your valuable time, money, or resources. There are a few options for schools to pursue when it comes to teaching students how to prepare for the SAT and ACT:
