SAT/ACT Test Prep
While a significant number of colleges are test optional and don’t require board scores, the SAT and ACT tests continue to be important for awarding of merit aid, to be required by many important universities and for direct entry into certain competitive programs such as engineering. Test prep services typically take months and cost thousands of dollars. My College Planning Team has designed this test prep module not to replace such tutoring but to provide students with an introduction to testing, everything from whether the SAT or ACT is best for them to testing tips to subject matter review, either to supplement their own individual study or to lay the foundation for further work with a tutor.
Best suited for 10th and 11th grade students who are getting ready to take an ACT or SAT.
Ideal start: Spring of Sophomore year or Fall of Junior year
