Maine South High School Junior, The ACT has become a national rite of passage for juniors because of its pivotal role in both college admissions and Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE) success. ACT 36 test preparation has given Maine South juniors the competitive edge on this critical test since 1993. Timing is everything. We have impeccably timed ACT 36 to wrap up just before the two April ACT exams – the national test on April 14 and the PSAE on April 24 – for a very deliberate reason. By late spring, juniors will have mastered junior curriculum, which the ACT targets. Students may enroll in our eight-week program on Tuesday evening or Saturday morning. A Thursday evening option is available at Maine West. Please note your calendar: Tuesday, 7:00-9:00 P.M.: 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14, 2/21, 2/28, 3/6 (5:30-9 Practice Test), 3/13 Saturday, 10:00-noon: 1/28, 2/4, 2/11, 2/18, 2/25, 3/3, 3/10 (8:30-12 Practice Test), 3/17 Our curriculum, our strategies and our instructors make the difference. A leader in Midwest test preparation since 1987, ExcelEdge knows what works and what does not. It is not enough to be smart. You have to know what to expect, how to eliminate choices, how to answer items quickly and know when to move on. At each class, experienced instructors who are certified content specialists will teach you effective offensive and defensive strategies. You will practice these strategies on timed segments of authentic ACT exams. We will steer you to additional drills in the Grammarian’s Guide and the Essentials of Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry and Trig.
