SAT/ACT Prep: What You Should Know…



  • All students in North Carolina are required to take the ACT in March of their junior year at their high school (no charge to parents)
  • Approximately 90% of the content IS COMMON TO BOTH TESTS
  • Current research suggests that students who get the best results:
  1. Start preparation early (summer prior to junior year)
  2. Take multiple tests
  3. Are open to taking both the SAT and ACT
  4. Develop a test plan that includes taking three to four SAT’s and/or ACT’s in a short period of time. (We help you develop a Test Plan that suits you! We recommend specific tests and test dates that fit your schedule while considering your other obligations — AP exams, final exams, athletic schedule, other commitments)
