The ACT is accepted at all four-year colleges and universities in the United States. The ACT consists of four tests: English, Math, Reading, and Science. Each test is scored on a scale from 1-36. The four scores are evenly averaged to produce a Composite score from 1-36.
New since September 2015 is an optional 40 minute essay at the end of the ACT, in which a student is asked to write an essay taking into account multiple perspectives on a given topic (sample essays and topics can be found here ). The essay is scored by two readers and given a final score of 2-12 in each of four different domains (ideas and analysis, development and support, organization, and language use). This is then scaled to a final score between 1 and 36. This is NOT included in the Composite score. Although many colleges do not require the essay, many students take it “just in case”.
- Classes may be scheduled in advance for the same time every week, or can be scheduled on a week-to-week basis.
- We recommend for any of the options that students start their study by taking a practice exam. This helps to guide the curriculum we create for the student to maximize their strengths and minimize any weaknesses.
- Please note we require 24 hours notice for any changes or cancellations to scheduled classes. There will be a $50 charge for any late cancellations or no-shows. We can be contacted by phone during business hours or email any time at your convenience.
