ACT Preparation

Now considered the most popular college entrance exam in the country, the ACT tests students on material associated with the standard high school curriculum. Divided into four sections — English, Math, Reading, and Science — the ACT requires two hours and fifty-five minutes of actual testing (the optional writing test requires an additional forty minutes). A standardized test that measures college readiness, the ACT is accepted by all US colleges and universities.

The ACT: Test Overview

  • English (75 questions, 45 minutes)
  • Math (60 questions, 60 minutes)
  • Reading (40 questions, 35 minutes)

  • Writing (1 prompt, 40 minutes)

At Carnegie Prep, we are committed to recognizing the potential of each student. We get to know students as individuals, building confidence and setting the stage for academic and personal success, in the classroom and on standardized tests. Teachers and tutors work on building students’ confidence and knowledge of key concepts and strategies as well as preparing for how to pace themselves on standardized tests. Using a team approach, we offer students the flexibility of one-to-one assistance and full courses, knowing that for many students a blended approach may work best. Read more about our approach.

Wow, remote classroom learning worked really, really well for us. Kudos to you for being innovative, creative, and thinking outside the box to problem solve and implement such an enormous switch in a matter of days!

SB, Parent

The distance learning made the course a bit more challenging, but I really liked how the format and structure was basically the same as one that we would do in class, just on a computer.

RM, Student

Austin Leah and Duane Smith were great and extremely helpful throughout the entire process.

CO, Student

Thank you very much for the tremendous help during the ACT course! I especially appreciated the one-on-one feedback we were able to receive in class as well as the convenience of being able to approach the teacher by email on days where we did not meet. I would gladly enroll in another class.

Our daughter is loving these classes! She says you all know her by name, she feels super supported, she says you all are so engaging and make the work so interesting, and she is doing so well! Thank you for everything. There is nothing in the world more valuable than teachers that inspire and motivate students and make them excited to learn!

TD, Parent

I have some fantastic, and I mean FANTASTIC, news to share with you. You did amazing work with my daughter! I’ve never heard of anybody improving their score so much.

EG, Parent

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with Emma. She has been working with our son for just a little over a month. You can read below that his initial score was a 25 before any tutoring. He took a second practice test on Saturday and scored a 28 overall with two 30’s.
Thank you Emma! We are excited!

HA, Parent

Jerry, your mothers direction and support from day one with subject test strategy, pairing my son with Caroline for ACT prep and essay editing, you coming out of retirement to share your wisdom, providing a few other amazing tutors for the little extra push, and suggesting we find an outside counselor that’s a fit were all individual acts that amounted to something big!!!!

Kyle is an amazing ACT tutor! He has the patience of a saint and my son’s score is every bit a reflection of him as it is of Nicholas. Lynn has been my greatest advisor these last 4 years and every word of advice she has given has been on the mark. So don’t go anywhere because I have two more kids coming down the line!
