Is there any homework involved?

The Advantage provides all of the materials you will need for the course, and although we recommend that students do practice work at home, we do not require students to do so.


What if I can't attend all of my classes?

If you miss any of your classes, you may attend a make-up class at any of our other participating locations.


How much do the courses cost?

You may enroll in the ACT for $140. Later, you may repeat the course as often as you wish FREE OF CHARGE.


Who should take these courses and how much will this program help me?

Any student who plans to attend college must take either the ACT or the SAT. Since most colleges will accept either test, many students take both exams and submit their better score. Studies by the Federal Trade Commission show that students who prepare for the college entrance exams score significantly higher that those who do not.


When should I take the ACT, SAT, and PSAT?

Exams for the ACT are given five times and exams for the SAT are given seven times each year. Students should take the ACT and SAT test(s) in the spring or summer of their junior year, or in the first semester of their senior year. Students are allowed to take either of the exams as many times as they wish. The PSAT, a preliminary SAT and a source of scholarships for students with high scores, is generally administered only one time each year - in October of the junior year. Students should begin preparation for the exams in the spring of their sophmore year.


When should I register for classes?

Class sizes are limited. Students will be accepted on a first-come basis with late registrations accepted as long as space is available.


How will I know if I'm accepted in the class(es)?

The Advantage will confirm your class registration and classroom assignment approximately one week before classes begin by email or by phone.
