Our school partners with OnToCollege to strengthen our students’ college and career readiness culture through effective test prep (grades 6-12) and college counseling tools. Together, our mission is to help create two- and four-year college graduates with minimal debt.
OnToCollege video test prep courses have a proven track record of increasing ACT/SAT scores and scholarship dollars for students. We will offer the course in school leading up to the test. Students can also use any of the additional resources on the website. These include additional subject prep, practice questions, quizzes, full length tests, and more test-taking strategies.
