Excel Edge Inc.

Programs

Our test preparation series includes three programs: PSAT 1520, ACT 36 and SAT 1600. While programs do have a “typical” format, we can customize any program to meet your school’s unique needs. As administrators work with us to determine the program(s) that are best for their schools, they often consider their objectives.

PSAT 1520 can raise the PSAT/ NMSQT score of any student; however, we believe this prep program is best used by students who with our instruction and strategies can score in the top 4% of the nation. We work in partnership with schools to identify their most academically-talented juniors, knowing the huge financial rewards that accompany National Merit Commended Scholar or National Merit Semifinalist or Finalist distinction. While scholarships do come from the National Merit Corporation, the largest financial awards come from colleges and universities who compete to recruit these top-scoring scholars.

ACT 36 is essential for juniors who plan to attend a college or university that asks for this score. ACT 36 is especially critical for Illinois and Michigan students who take the ACT as part of their state’s two-day graduation qualifying exam – the PSAE in Illinois or the MME in Michigan. We work with schools to create a program calendar that optimizes scores for their juniors.

SAT 1600 is a must-take for any student who plans to attend a college or university that asks for this score. Our students find it to their advantage to apply with test scores – either from the SAT or ACT – that college admissions offices are most used to seeing. That said, all college and universities have concordant data to help them translate scores from one test to another, if they choose to use it. We work with schools to help them determine the best prep program for their junior population based on the colleges and universities to which their students most typically apply.

School administrators who work in partnership with us say…

“I would recommend any of the test prep classes of ExcelEdge, Inc. for your students’ test preparation. ExcelEdge is a company that is fully professional in its dealings with parents, students, and counselors. If you wish to have a class at your school, ExcelEdge makes it work for your school schedule and your students. They understand that each school has different schedules and needs, and they will be happy to make their classes work – not because they want to make a sale and have their program at your school – but because they truly believe their program works. And it does! We have had ACT 36 at our school for 18 years and do not intend to stop anytime soon."
