“ExcelEdge delivers results for students. The staff is highly trained, professional, and student-centered, and they deliver a quality, intensive test prep program that raises student test scores. I've worked with Carol Talabay, ExcelEdge's director, for many years and have found her attention to detail amazing. She will work with you to create a test prep program that is focused on the needs of your students for a very reasonable cost. ExcelEdge truly is the edge that schools need to boost student achievement.”

“With so many opportunities for our best and brightest students to be involved in activities, enrichment, and athletics, I recommend without hesitation that our students make time for PSAT 1520.

 “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.   Sure you can spend thousands on an individual test prep program for your child, but I have found ACT 36 to be an affordable and excellent curriculum-based test prep program.  Carol Talabay is always available to answer any questions from school staff or parents.  She answers emails or phone calls almost immediately or certainly within 24 hours.  The certified teachers of their classes are knowledgeable about not just the content of the subject area and test strategies, but they also understand and communicate well with high school students.  Their teachers are professionals who begin classes promptly so that students get the full two hours of instructional time each week.   

Last year some of our students took a PSAT prep class through a major corporation which came to our school.  I was extremely disappointed with the quality of instruction, the class time wasted, and the poor classroom management.  This year ExcelEdge is presenting PSAT 1520 to our students.  Carol Talabay is completely honest and upfront about who they are targeting and how quickly the class moves.  She will readily admit that the PSAT 1520 class is not for everyone.  She is not interested in just making money on their program.  She truly believes in what her company offers students for test prep.  And she has the statistics to prove it!”

“This class was a fantastic preparation for not only the PSAT/NMSQT, but also an insightful strategic base for ACT and SAT tests. Teachers were willing to help if need be and made the classes fun.”

“I feel much more confident going into the PSAT than I did before this class. I learned many time-saving tricks. Also, I learned how to pick apart the vocabulary words and look at context clues. I learned very much overall through this program.”

Lincoln-Way East High School student

 

“I really liked the fact that we were able to really work through math problems. I liked the fact that I could also expand my vocabulary through the workouts. I’m also quite happy that I know the layout and strategies for the PSAT. Great program! I’ll definitely be back for the SAT class.”

Students who are named National Merit Semifinalists and National Merit Commended Students can leverage that distinction in the college financial aid game. Play that card!
