ACT and/or SAT: When should I take these exams?    Students should plan on taking these tests at least two times. It is recommended that students take both tests no later than the spring of their junior year, so they can take them again during the fall of their senior year. This plan allows students to get the best possible scores before submitting their college applications. How do you choose which test to take? Read this article to learn more about that.

Did you know that only 40% of college students actually graduate in 4 years? That may be because many students overlook one of the most important factors that should be considered before deciding where to go to college. Read this article to find out what that is.

Our mission is to empower students to be college and/or career ready by helping them discover their passions and bring their future into focus.
