ACT/SAT Test Prep
A-List’s fully customizable ACT and SAT professional development programs equip instructors with the tools and resources to effectively run a stand-alone test prep course. Training session programs include an in-depth overview of the exams discussing format, content, overall strategies, and scoring assessments. To complement our teacher training services, A-List has also developed an extensive suite of ACT/SAT student and teacher books, study guides, and e-learning tools. These materials have been aligned to recognized educational benchmarks for various state standards allowing teachers to incorporate ACT/SAT related skills and strategies seamlessly into existing curriculum – improving results on both standardized tests and in the classroom.
A-List Education recommends one full day of training for ELA and one full day of Math/Science for staff planning to teach an ACT/SAT preparation course. Training sessions will provide attendees with a solid grounding in the nature and content of the tests including an in-depth overview of the Test, discussing format, content, overall strategies and scoring assessments based on individual exams. Attendees will also have the opportunity to focus on subject specific techniques, common mistakes, and practice problems.
We hold online seminars throughout the school year, during which instructors will explore subjects in greater depth and continue their professional development beyond the initial training.
Customizable Training Components
Our professional development and materials can be adapted to align with the unique educational objectives of your school/organization. We can send multiple staff to your site to complete subject-specific training programs simultaneously.
Once your school begins a partnership with A-List, we will perform an analysis of your students’ scores to inform the training focus as well as provide teachers with pre-surveys to guarantee that time spent will provide the maximum benefits.

…There is a need for the type of program you have developed to be made available to every child regardless of income. This is why I have brought A-List into school districts I have been fortunate enough to lead: to train our teachers and provide the support necessary to improve our students’ scores.
A-List was engaging and substantive for our students. Each week our Dreamers were completely immersed in the class’s content…The sessions were poignant, enjoyable, and challenging and exactly what I had hoped for my Dreamers.
This was by far the most useful professional development session I’ve attended in my career.
