Our ACT Live-Online Prep Course includes expert instruction, a proven format, all required course materials, access to diagnostic exams, and online support resources in one convenient, affordable package to provide students with the tools they need to prepare for the ACT.

Meeting twice per week, the online format is a convenient way to develop essential test-taking skills. Students are provided with an in-depth review of the exam materials, real test questions, insight into strategies for succeeding on standardized tests and a comprehensive study plan.
