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.  Currently, many colleges and universities are waiving the SAT/ACT requirement.  Students need to check with their desired institution to prepare adequately for the requirements.

Revolution Prep is a great company to partner with for SAT/ACT preparations.

Not sure which test to take?

Select a test below to learn more about each on their official websites. 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.

FAFSA Guide

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.
