Is the ACT Still Important? Yes. Here's Why...
ACT scores are important. ACT scores are required for graduation, scholarships, special programs, and merit-based financial aid. Many colleges and universities have made taking the ACT optional for 2021 applicants because of the pandemic, but experts say the test is still relevant.
The Tennesee Department of Education released an article, which reported that the participation for the ACT for the 2019-2020 graduating class held steady despite COVID-19. Additionally, taking the ACT can only benefit your child with test-optional colleges & universities. Your child is not required to submit their ACT scores on applications if they do poorly, but if your child does well, then their ACT scores can only boost their applications.
Practice ACT At Learning Lab
Is your child considering taking the ACT on June 12th, July 17th, or even next fall? If so, we are offering several upcoming group Practice ACT dates (we will cap the groups at 8 students per location, per date). Our Practice ACT is a great way for your child to become familiar with the test, and it comes with an individual consultation to review your child’s results. During the consultation, we will discuss where your child’s strengths and weaknesses are, we will show where they may need ACT prep, and we can determine whether your child should take the ACT in the summer, or consider waiting until the fall. Details below!

ACT Prep At Learning Lab
Our ACT prep teaches strategies for each section of the test and provides opportunities to practice using actual ACT tests. Students who prepare for the ACT at Learning Lab typically earn improved scores, and those who work diligently within our system can and often do improve their scores significantly.
Our ACT Prep Will Help Your Child Improve Their Test Performance In 3 Distinct Ways:
We will teach your child test-taking strategies that will help them dissect the question, analyze the responses, and manage their time.
We use real ACT exams, which will allow your child ample opportunity to practice and familiarize themselves with the test.
We identify areas of subject weakness and review content in those areas to shore up skills before testing.
