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.
