While the SAT is the most popular test for students applying to colleges, increasing numbers of students are taking the ACT, either to supplement their SAT scores or as an alternative test. The two tests differ substantially, meaning that many students can score better on the ACT. At Georgetown Learning Centers, we have a variety of ACT prep options designed to help students master the skills and strategies needed to succeed on the test.
What are Study Lounges?
Study Lounges are hour long guided-study blocks held twice a week in which students can gather to work on homework, review concepts, and ask questions of instructors. Conducted in small classrooms by course instructors at our GLC offices, these hour long blocks are optional but highly encouraged for students who want to gain the most from the ACT Success Course.
What if my student misses a class?
We recommend he or she attends that week's Study Lounge to work with an instructor through the most important missed material. We find that students typically need to attend one Study Lounge for every two hours of missed class time.
What is an ACT diagnostic test?
Diagnostics are real ACT tests administered in previous years. GLC offers the chance to take two diagnostics with each ACT Success Course. After completing the diagnostic, students receive a comprehensive score report that pinpoints areas for improvement and progress over time.
What if my student can't attend an ACT diagnostic test?
We can administer ACT diagnostic tests any time during our normal tutoring hours. Call or email your local director to schedule a make-up time that works best for you.
Does GLC sign my students up for the actual sitting of the ACT?
No. You must register through the ACT website. Register early so you can ensure getting your preferred testing location.
