ACT Test Prep

St. Cloud State University’s ACT Preparation program offers serious preparation for this high-stakes undergraduate admissions exams.

St. Cloud State University understands the vital role that college entrance exams such as the ACT play in college admissions. Properly prepared students are more likely to perform to their highest potential. SCSU Test Prep is here to help students in the St. Cloud area meet their potential through our ACT Summer Institutes.


ACT Summer Institutes

St. Cloud State University’s ACT Summer Institute offers comprehensive preparation for the ACT test. The ACT Institute is an intensive test prep program that provides students with the tools they need to prepare for, and succeed on, the ACT exam. The condensed one week format is a convenient way for students to develop essential test-taking tools during the summer; a time of year during which students have more free time to practice. Students are provided with an in-depth review of the exam content, strategies for improving their scores, and a comprehensive study plan.
