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.

The following are just a few of the testimonials we have recently received from students.

Helen raises her score from a 22 to a 26

“I just received my test scores, and I went from a 22 to a 26!!! I am SO excited about it! Thank you so much for all your help; I cannot thank you enough! I will definitely be referring you to all my friends and my little sister plans on going to you as well for prep classes.”

Dave earns a 31

Thank you SO MUCH for the invaluable Better Test Scores class. My son scored a 31 on his ACT. That was a key piece that allowed him to be admitted to his first choice college - the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My son took the class with two buddies ... each had boosts from the class. One student has test taking challenges and it really helped him deal with those challenges effectively. So all three of the students that I watched closely got in their first choice school. I highly recommend this class to others hoping for the best results on their quest to get into their preferred colleges. Kudos to you and everyone involved with your class!

James works from a 26 to a 30

Hey Mr. Franklin, I'm just emailing to say that your class definitely helped my ACT score. I received a 26 on my December test, which was right before your classes started. For the April 14th test, I got a composite score of 30. This score has qualified me for the Presidential Scholarship for three colleges that I am interested in. Thank you very much for your time and devotion to help us in the class. It really helped me out!

Erin goes from a 24 to a 30

“I just wanted to let you know how the test scores went! My composite went from a 24 to a 30! Thank you so much, your class has gotten me my dream score!”  

Justin improves from a 27 to a 31

I did the same or better in every subject and improved my math by 3 and science by 9 points! Praise the Lord! I got the exact score that I needed to get that scholarship for Taylor. I don't know for sure if that is the school I want to go to yet (my family is moving to Indiana, so in state tuition for Purdue makes it a possibility now along with other schools), but It is now more than possible!!!
