Free ACT Prep for All York Students

All York juniors can prepare for the PSAE/ACT with free test preparation web tools. ACT Online Prep is an excellent tool for students to utilize.  There are many features to this test prep website such as - study skills review, test taking strategies, and a review of core ACT subject areas in the diagnostic test feature.

 
This program allows each student to take 2 ACT practice tests. Some junior students will take one of the practice tests today. Students involved in the PSAT will have two opportunities to take a practice ACT test at their own convenience when logging in to this program. Students can access this test prep program wherever internet access is available.   Not only can students take ACT practice tests when logging in to this program, they can learn about test taking strategies and recommended study paths based on their performance on the ACT practice and diagnostic tests.  
 
Junior students will be able to utilize this test prep website over the course of the next year as they prepare for the PSAE exam in April.  Please encourage your student to utilize this test prep program as they study for the very important standardized college admission tests over the next year.
