The ACT Summer Institute provides 20 hours of classroom instruction in a condensed one–week format, convenient for students seeking to develop essential test–taking tools during the summer–a time of year during which students have more free time to practice. Students receive in–depth review of the exam content, strategies for improving their scores, and a comprehensive study plan. Class sessions use real test questions to show just how these skills are tested. The course fee includes all classroom and online sessions and course materials.

Note: Lunch from 12–1 PM.
