Customized to You

Our smart diagnostic figures out your true skill level and builds a custom prep program that caters to your difficulty level. If you're strong in Math: Circle problems, we give you more difficult problems. If you're weak in Reading: Passage Function problems, we give you easier problems. We challenge you at the tip of your ability, where you'll grow the fastest.

Your program is continuously updating. After every lesson, we re-estimate your skill and adapt your study plan. For example, if you ace a beginner Math: Algebra lesson, you'll be upgraded immediately to the Advanced lesson. Likewise, if you need extra work on Writing: Idioms, we'll reschedule it into your study plan.

The result: the most efficient studying and higher score results for every hour you put in.

Videos to Clarify Hard Concepts

Many lessons have included videos to show you the content and strategies you need to ace the ACT. These high-quality videos supplement our interactive lessons to carefully explain the most difficult concepts. But unlike many other programs, we're much more than a collection of videos.

I like how it suits my level of test skills after taking the diagnostic test. It has helped me improve in certain areas over time without feeling overwhelmed. I really feel like I am getting more out of this program than I did with private tutoring.

Full Guidance

You'll never get lost on how to study. We give you exact step-by-step instructions on what to study: which lessons to take and when. We tell you whether you should be reading lessons, drilling questions, or reviewing your mistakes. We assign practice tests to you at the best times.

At the same time, you're free to choose what you'll work on in the short term. Not feeling like a Math lesson right now? Take a Reading lesson you're assigned instead.

We actively motivate you to study more for the ACT. We send weekly email reports to both parent and student discussing lessons completed and hours studied. These emails help parents stay up-to-date on student progress and hold students accountable for studying. You'll get compliments for work well done, and warnings for slacking off.

You'll spend more hours studying with PrepScholar than with other prep programs. This means higher score improvements.

Example Lesson
To me the program almost feels like a game, which is great! With every lesson I complete I can see myself "leveling up" and it keeps me honed in on the over all goal. It makes me feel like I am actually going to learn something. Better than a live class.

Progress Trackers

In your ACT prep, it's important to know where you are and how far you have to go. That's why we give you a variety of tools to keep track of your progress. A time tracker shows you how much time you're studying and how you stack up against your goal. Skill charts show you how you're making progress over time. A log of all progress gives you a complete record of your past work and lets you access every quiz taken on demand.

By watching your progress over time, you'll see your hard work paying off. Confidence is key in beating the ACT, and by prepping with us, you'll be more confident than ever.

Create Your Own Quizzes

If you decide you would like to drill particular topics, you can create your own quizzes with questions selected from those topics. After answering the questions, you can see the correct answers, with detailed explanations of why those answers are correct.
