TCA's test preparation system helps you to level the playing field and ensure that all students in your school are ready to take the SAT and ACT. The educator-developed program has been proven to raise school SAT and ACT averages. TCA's Online StudyGuide diagnoses a real SAT or ACT and gives your students a detailed analysis of their performance. By aggregating this data, the Online StudyGuide shows teachers where they should focus their test preparation efforts. The StudyGuide also tracks student progress and gives you the tools you need to tailor each student's test prep program.
Optional tools including professional development, curriculum guides and student workbooks for the SAT and ACT are available to help you build a consistent SAT/ACT prep program, extend your test prep efforts, and enable your core curriculum teachers to support SAT/ACT prep efforts.
"This is the first year we've worked with TCA and, frankly, the results are outstanding! As of the January 2009 SAT administration all four [of our] schools have shown a significant increase in their school's SAT average."
Dr. Heath Morrison, Community Superintendent,
Montgomery County Public Schools
