Grades in High School matter, especially in the college preparation courses. Your GPA is the most important consideration when applying for university admissions. However, your SAT & ACT Test score is a significant contribution on whether you will be chosen at more selective colleges. Considerations are grades in college prep courses, grades in all courses, strength of curriculum, admission test scores, essay or writing sample, counselor recommendation, teacher recommendation, student's demonstrated interest, class rank, extra curricular activities, AP/AB scores, interview, work, SAT Subject scores, & portfolio.

Through customized and individualized ACT PREP, students receive tutoring in their weaker ACT subject areas (concept instruction in the problems they get wrong). We also focus on improvement of the strong subject areas to REACH for 36.
Instruction is combined with subject strategies. Students benefit by taking multiple practice tests. With 3-5 ACT Practice Tests we identify and define strong and weak subject areas.
The SUMMIT Syllabus has helped some students bump their scores 1-2 points up prior to our prep. After completing our ACT prep, students often achieve scores 5-8 points up by taking 2 or more ACT Tests.
2 Barron's ACT PREP Workbooks are used to supplement and enrich the student's ACT PREP experience, enabling them to get the more difficult problems correct.

SAT Test Facts
Which Test is Best?
You can choose One-on-One Private tutoring or a SAT Small Group Class, with no greater than 6 students.
If you consider our Small Group Class size, it is almost like a One-on-One ratio of teacher to student, as 2 teachers are always dedicated to our SAT PREP sessions.
The SAT has 3 components: Math, Critical Reading and Writing. The SAT is more focused on vocabulary where the ACT tests you in grammar, punctuation and syntax. The SAT does not have a separate test in science. Both tests contain basic math problems, algebra I & II, coordinate & solid geometry and trig. Writing an Essay is considered optional for both the SAT and ACT test. Many Universities do want you to submit an essay; research what your college asks for.
You have 50 minutes to complete the essay on the SAT and 40 minutes to complete it on the ACT.
The SAT will test your critical thinking, writing/reading and English skills.
The ACT will test your abilities in remembering facts, utilizing information and your comprehension of the sciences.
Some might say students who are logical would thrive on the ACT while those who think more freely might prefer the SAT. From your past experiences in taking tests, determine what the weak areas are and work on those.
By seeking out teachers, counselors and tutors you can ask for advice on how to improve in those areas. Take sample tests, evaluate the results and keep testing and reevaluating. A review of the weaker area(s) of concern can help with the content of the SAT, such as vocabulary words or brushing up on algebra or geometry problems. Essays are judged for quality not quantity. There are many tips for good hard hitting writing.
