Test prep

More than just tips and tricks

Building confidence in taking tests results from the knowledge, skills, and motivation that lead to increased test scores and success in college.

We build this assurance by equipping coaches with testing materials and detailed student data, so they can better meet your student’s unique needs.

Doing well on the SAT and ACT requires more than tips and tricks. Main Street Scholars helps students understand why the test matters and how it can change their college-going trajectories. Students need to feel motivated to use this test as a lever to unlock opportunity, and they need the strategies to perform effectively. Combined skills and strategies build test-taking confidence, leading to outcomes that set students up for success.
