FREE ACT Workshops, FREE ACT Sessions, & ACT Courses!

Free ACT Skills Analysis Workshop
We will provide several Free ACT Skills Analysis Workshops this spring at our facility on Nicholasville Road. Upcoming workshops will take place on February 3, 2019 and February 10, 2019. Please let your students and your parents know about this opportunity.
Click here to download the flyer <>

We feel that students deserve to know what the test is about, how they can prepare for the test, what they should study, and what are their strengths and weaknesses. We will evaluate short sections in all four subjects of the ACT: English, Math, Reading and Science and provide free tips, insights, test-taking strategies, and study-tips.

Signing up for this workshop can be done online <> . Feel free to share the link.

ACT Classes
We have added course options (10 courses available this spring)
(see our class schedule <>  and feel free to share the hyperlink.) We have affordable class prices (between $199.00 and $459.00) We have small class size (less than 15 people per class) We have multiple class options (Sunday and week classes) We analyze each student’s skills during every session.


Free Classes
We know that not everybody cannot afford our fees, even with increased returns on investment (a 3-point increase on the ACT means S450.00 more in KEES money.) Therefore, we will happily take your recommendation if you know of a hard-working low-income student who would benefit from our services. We will provide ONE FREE CLASS per SCHOOL in Fayette County if a student is recommended by the school. Ask students to apply because often these opportunities remain unclaimed. Any student who feels they qualify can stop by the Guidance Office to see his/her counselor.

Feel free to  contact us with questions or requests,
