Why is Test Prep Important?

A student's SAT and/or ACT score is perhaps the single most important number college admissions offices consider as they make their decision.  It can be the deciding factor in whether or not a student is accepted to the college of their choice.  Equally important, the higher the student's scores on these exams, the greater the amount of financial aid many schools will extend.


How Does Viking Test Prep Work?

The cost is $150 and includes a pre-test, a study guide (if applicable) and 10-20 hours of instruction over a five-week period.  Our program is taught by content specialists from Homewood-Flossmoor High School.  We use the pre-test results (for ACT Prep) to create tiers of classes.  Students receive instruction at the level appropriate for them.  Each week, students receive one hour of instruction in each of the subject-area tests (For ACT there are classes in English, Reading, Math and Science.  For SAT, there are classes in Math, and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing).
