The ACT and SAT
The ACT and SAT are standardized tests used by colleges nationwide for admissions. Both tests are used to access a student's college readiness. Each test is offered several times throughout the year and generally one must be taken before a student begins the application process to a college or university.
Revolution Prep will be offering a full length SAT/ACT practice exam or tutoring services at Pacific Christian Academy !

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
In the course of our research, we found that most students were not aware that nearly all of them are eligible for some form of financial aid. Because of this, we decided to create a user-friendly guide that clarifies common questions, making it easier for students to have access to the support they qualify for to start or continue their education.
We are always looking for ways our students can earn scholarships for post high school education plans. By giving you and your students the tools to make this possible, we hope that this will inspire and encourage them that they are not alone as they set off into their bright futures!
