American College Test (ACT)

The ACT is a standardized assessment that helps colleges assess the qualifications of applicants for advanced study in college. Schools use the test as one predictor of academic performance in a college program.

The ACT measures critical reasoning skills by testing math and verbal concepts that students have developed over time. It does not measure specific content from high school. The ACT comprises four main sections: English, Reading, Mathematics, and Science. There is also an optional Writing section.

Students generally take the ACT during their junior year of high school. Our ACT test prep course is ideal for rising juniors that may be taking the test for the first time, for those high school students that have already taken the exam but wish to improve their score, and those younger students who are curious about the latest format of the ACT.

Deciding between the ACT and SAT?

Choose the Format that Works for You!

  • Classroom-Based: Our classroom ACT Blitz/Summer Institute gives you the familiar experience of working within a traditional classroom setting with convenient online support resources.
  • Live-Online: Our online ACT Blitz/Summer Institute combines the same great program as the classroom-based ACT Blitz/Summer Institute with the added flexibility of attending class from anywhere or at any time. Our virtual classroom provides you with the opportunity to interact in real-time with our expert instructors and includes the added benefit of watching recordings of your class sessions at your convenience for up to 120 days after the course ends.

Live-Online Office Hours

Weekly live-online office hours provide a convenient way for students to get individualized help with specific questions or concerns. The live-online office hours are free-form meetings open to all participants from both Classroom-Based and Live-Online Classes. The sessions are drop-in and student-directed, so there will not be a planned presentation for each session. Instead, instructors will answer questions and work through problems in the order that they are received.

System Requirements

The live-online ACT sessions and Live-Online Office Hours are offered online using a free Adobe Connect application. The only requirements are high speed internet access and speakers or headphones. Check your system for compatibility.

Course materials will be delivered directly to your home. We recommend registering at least five (5) business days in advance of the course start date to ensure timely delivery of your student package.
