“For nine years and running, ExcelEdge’s ACT 36 has been an excellent, ACT test prep evening course for Community High School District 218 students.  Each year Carol Talabay and her crew of well-trained, highly competent teachers move students along a series of lessons, activities and practice tests designed to boost students’ knowledge and confidence for this most important exam.  Their hard work pays off.  Carol’s annual reports not only demonstrate student achievement but also student satisfaction.  Year after year, students praise their experience. 

This quality program is also one of the most reasonably priced test prep courses in the Chicagoland area. Without a doubt, ExcelEdge edges out the competition for quality and affordability, and we highly recommend their programs.”

Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services
Community High School District 218

“I have been fortunate enough to work with Carol Talabay and ExcelEdge in two different districts.  In each situation, she customized the program to meet our needs and was extremely flexible in exploring different ways to deliver the program.  The teachers are always excellent, and students consistently respond very favorably to the program and how much it helped them gain confidence, along with a better understanding of test-taking strategies.”

Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction
Niles Township High School District 219

"The Talabays are excellent to work with, responsive to questions from school personnel and parents and they streamline the process to make it as easy on schools as possible.

The ExcelEdge test prep program is comprehensive and provides practical strategies to help students feel comfortable and confident in an ACT test situation.  Our staff is so supportive that several have opted to participate as teachers.

With ACT being part of Illinois’s NCLB assessment, it is imperative that students be comfortable with the style of an ACT test – ExcelEdge provides that."

Director of Guidance
West Aurora High School

"Excel Edge provides guidance, encouragement and applicable test-taking strategies for our students as they prepare for the ACT exam.  Their teachers’ expertise in their content areas assists our students tremendously as they navigate the ACT.  The Give Something Back Foundation students have consistently commented that ExcelEdge has provided the best coaching and instruction, compared to other ACT preparation programs.  The Give Something Back Foundation is very fortunate and proud to have ExcelEdge as one of our educational partners."

Testing

At ExcelEdge we believe that the best practice for the PSAT, ACT or SAT is practice with actual tests purchased from ACT or the College Board! Whether we are working with groups of students in our classes or testing an entire junior class, we exclusively use authentic tests.

We can facilitate an All-School Practice Test for your junior class for a nominal charge. In addition to scoring the exam, we can

  • Return tests and results to students.
  • Meet with students and parents to interpret scores.
  • Provide a database of students’ results to schools.
  • Provide an item analysis of test items for schools.
  • Provide data analysis by content area for schools.
  • Offer longitudinal data analysis.

"Our school had a practice ACT a couple of weeks ago, and my score shot up 3 points from my previous score! I am very hapy I took this class. All of the pointers given to me were extremely beneficial. Thank you!"
