Like it or not, summer vacation is over. With the beginning of the academic year comes a new cycle of standardized college entrance exams, starting with the ACT on September 12. Most high school juniors and seniors may feel woefully unprepared for these high stakes tests, but we know a whole lot of students who spent this summer getting test ready.
Anyone who lives in Rochester should know by now that Chariot Learning runs full-length proctored practice tests across Monroe County and beyond just about every single week. How busy were we this summer?
- We proctored 24 different practice tests, including SATs, ACTs, and even a PSAT, at 8 different locations. Kudos to our partners at the Pittsford Community Library, Brighton Memorial Library, Webster Community Programs, Greece Public Library, Henrietta Public Library, Macedon Public Library, and NextStepU in Victor for making these tests available to so many teens!
- How many students came to these tests? Would you believe 124 different students took a total of 187 practice tests? Talk about commitment! And this doesn’t even count the multitude of students in our classes and tutoring programs who took timed tests on their own. We’re especially proud of the students who sat for three or more tests this summer.
We can’t stress enough how much high quality practice tests matter for anyone preparing for standardized exams. If your son or daughter didn’t get a chance to prep and practice over the summer, don’t worry. As we turn the page from summer to fall, plenty of time still remains to get test ready for the October, November, and December tests. Ready to get started?
