What is the ACT and why is it important?

Created by ACT Inc., the ACT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The idea (in theory, at least) is to provide colleges with one common criterion that can be used to compare all applicants. The weight placed on ACT scores varies from school to school. Other important factors that schools consider in their admissions decisions are your high school GPA, academic transcripts, letters of recommendation, interviews and personal essays. For more specific information on the importance of ACT scores at the schools you’re interested in, contact the admissions offices directly.

The ACT is offered nationally every year in September, October, December, February*, April and June.


Why Are Our Services The Best?

Our instructors teach students proven strategies and provide comprehensive, content specific review of exam material. Students will come away knowing how to accurately diagnose and answer each question, as well as develop an understanding of what test scorers are looking for in written sections. There are no surprises on test day!

At On Track Learning, our instructors empower our students with a  tailored, balanced mix of strategy and content review that comes from their deep understanding of the exam.

Test taking strategies alone will do very little to improve your student's ACT score, without your student having an accurate diagnosis of knowledge gaps. We simulate testing conditions during each session, as well as provide your student a proctored exam in every package. We cover all the bases to ensure the success of our students!
