ACT Course Schedule
Please scroll to the right on mobile to see the full schedule.
*Please Note: The spring course is designed to offer students both flexibility and longitudinal preparation working into the spring and summer testing seasons. The course begins with a full-length Saturday morning practice test in early January (see dates below) with a Performance Analysis (question and category level analysis of the test to identify areas of score growth). Sometimes students have a conflict with the Saturday morning practice tests. Please know that students can self-administer the test at home, if need be, and send a picture of the answer sheet for scoring.
