ACT Prep Course
The ACT is a test that students need to take to be admitted into most colleges and universities. Combined with a student’s grade point average, a student’s ACT score is one of the major factors used to determine his or her college admission and the possibility of earning merit-based scholarship money. This course offers students the knowledge they need to improve their ACT scores. Students have been offered millions of dollars in scholarship money as a result of improving their ACT scores after taking this course.
