ACT College Ready


What is ACT CollegeReady?
ACT CollegeReady is an online, self-paced learning platform delivered in two steps. It begins with an inventory of your current math and/or English skills. Then, it identifies areas where you can improve in math and/or English. Then, it creates a personalized learning path for you. ACT CollegeReady will empower you to address your individual academic needs and prepare you for college-level coursework.
