Our learning Test Prep Programs offer intensive classroom training in a variety of formats that work best for each individual student’s learning style.

ACT: Your ACT composite score, together with your high school grades, indicates how prepared you are for college. In addition, the scores from the various sections of the ACT will help your college place you in the right classes, matching your skills with course requirements.

SAT: The SAT is designed to assess your academic readiness for college. This exam provides a path to opportunities, financial support, and scholarships, in a way that's fair to all students. The SAT keeps pace with what colleges are looking for today, measuring the skills required for success in the 21st century.

GRE: GRE scores are used to assess the suitability of applicants for graduate-level study across many different subject areas. Some departments may ask applicants to take one of the GRE Subject Tests, while others require the General Test. The Subject Tests assess knowledge in a particular field, while the General Test assesses verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and analytical writing.

GED: GED measure proficiency in science, mathematics, social studies, reading, and writing. Passing the GED test gives those who do not complete high school, or who do not meet requirements for high school diploma, the opportunity to earn their high school equivalency credential, also called a high school equivalency diploma, general equivalency diploma a high-school degree awarded by a series of examinations.

TSI: The purpose of the new examination is to assess your academic ability in order to correctly identify your course sequence. The TSI Assessment will determine your preparation level for the subjects of reading, writing, and math.
