The ACT is the most popular test nationally and internationally. All colleges accept the ACT. Not all colleges are accepting the new SAT next fall due to the fact that the new SAT (debuted in March of 2016) was made a lot easier and aligned with Common Core. Make sure you protect your student.

As of today, Illinois will not be able to offer a "free" SAT or ACT during the spring of 2018 due to a lack of funds and the elimination of Common Core which required states to use a test to measure schools.

Don't wait to start training.

Similar to a sport, the more you practice leading up to a competition, the better you become. Through repetition and experience you are able to learn from your mistakes and improve your level of performance.

You can take the ACT up to 12 times. Colleges only care about your highest score. The ACT is offered six times a year (seven times if your state requires all public school students to take the ACT).

The key is no matter what time of the year it is, you need to start preparing as soon as possible.

If you are a Sophomore, below is the IDEAL long-term timeline:

  1. Take your first ACT in the summer after your sophomore year

    The June test date gives you a starting point to know where you are and what to expect. Buy back a copy of your answers to see where your strengths and weaknesses lie.

  2. After this test you should take Jason's class - live or online

    You'll learn how to be a better test performer for the ACT and your high school classes. Junior year is a lot harder than the first two years.

  3. Take your next ACT in the fall of your junior year.

    The September or October tests show you where you've improved and will help you to focus on your weaknesses.

  4. Winter of your junior year.

    The pressure is off. You've been practicing for this all year and now you're taking the tests in full stride. The December ACT allows you to buy back a copy of your answers. Take advantage of this and see where your weaknesses are.

  5.  Review & Prepare.

    You’ve got three sets of scores and two copies of your actual test answers.  Use those to determine the best way to prepare during the January through April.

  6.  Take the April ACT

    The National April ACT test date is the most popular one every year.  This one should be the long-term focus of every high school junior.

  7. Re-evaluate

    Once you’re April scores are in, decide whether or not you need to take the June ACT.  A good rule of thumb is that if you have not scored a 32, take it again in June.  Try to get your score up a few more points before you begin your summer college visits.

 

 


Our students increase their ACT score an average of 4 points!
