Next Level ACT Prep Course on February 28

Almost every Ohio high school student now takes the ACT. Securing a good score can assure graduation, qualify students for CCP opportunities, and perhaps most importantly, help students gain admission to college and obtain essential financial aid. This six-hour preparation seminar helps demystify the ACT by explaining:

  • the test’s structure,
  • the academic content covered on it,
  • testing and time management strategies students can employ to maximize their performance.


Students learn specific, tangible strategies to answer more questions correctly, how to decipher questions designed to thwart their performance, and specific academic content that is regularly tested on the ACT.


Each participant gets:

  • six hours of live, engaging, interactive instruction;
  • a comprehensive, 400-page, reference workbook;
  • online access to over 1000 additional practice test questions;
  • free, live, phone-in pre-test tutoring.
