Ready for ACTion

Students reflect on the success of their chosen standardized test study methods - from classes to private tutoring and prep books.

Although universities require personalized essays and transcripts to consider for admission, one of the predominant aspects of each application is a number that is  considered to provide the biggest indicator of college readiness – the ACT or SAT. With three national ACT tests remaining this school year, high school students across the nation seek various methods to improve their scores for college applications. 

In efforts to distinguish their applications, students often prepare differently in order to score high on these tests and separate themselves from the national averages. According to, the 2015 Kansas average for ACT scores was a 22.
