Fall Test Preparation Opportunities through the Academic Booster Club

Practice SAT/ACT Tests offered at Wheeler:  One of the best ways to score higher on the SAT or ACT is to practice taking the test. For a nominal fee, the Academic Booster Club offers students three practice options: a full-length SAT, a full-length ACT and a condensed, combination test with SAT and ACT sections. Scores are NOT reported to colleges, but are provided to students in a comprehensive report. With their results broken down by section, students can then focus on the aspects of the test where they need additional preparation. For more information, please visit the Academic Booster website here.
