ACT Prep Course

We offer a free ten-week ACT prep class held on the University of Chicago campus, in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood.

Class schedule:
Week 1: Full-length diagnostic (practice) exam
Weeks 2-8: Class sessions (strategy and content)
Week 9: Full-length final (practice) exam

Class format:
Class meets from 10 AM - 2:30 PM each Saturday. Each of the four multiple-choice subjects of the ACT is covered:

English (10 - 11 am)
Math (11 am - 12 pm)
Break (12 - 12:30 pm)
Reading (12:30 - 1:30 pm)
Science (1:30 - 2:30 pm)

Each subject is taught by a dedicated instructor who will stay with the class for the duration of the class session. Our instructors are are University of Chicago undergraduates who have scored well on the exam and have received training from experienced members of our program. Class size is approximately 20. Students are divided on the basis of their diagnostic score.

The class itself is completely free. We do, however, ask that students purchase a single textbook (made by the Barron's test prep company) that is available in bookstores, libraries, and on Amazon. Practice tests and problems are taken from this book.

Once accepted into the course, if the cost of this book poses a problem for you and your family, we are happy to work with you to make other arrangements.
