For the past nineteen years, Advantage Educational Programs has benefited thousands of students in Minnesota by preparing them for the college entrance exams. Advantage will once again present its ACT Preparatory Course and SAT/PSAT Preparatory Course to the juniors and sophomores from Minneapolis South High School. Advantage currently offers its programs in more than thirty high schools in Minneapolis/St. Paul and the surrounding area.

These courses are designed for students who wish to improve their test-taking skills and improve their overall scores on the college entrance exams. Since 1988, on average, students who finish the course increase their scores significantly on the ACT (36 pt. total) and on the SAT (3600 pt. total). The Advantage will provide an introduction to the ACT and SAT/PSAT formats and strategies for answering questions, as well as instruction for the specific subject areas tested. Focal points of the program include diagnostic testing, vocabulary development, intensive mathematical review, reading comprehension improvement, science reasoning, concentration improvement, overcoming test anxiety, essay writing, and time management.

Students may attend classes at any of the metro area locations. All of the 12-hour SAT/PSAT and 12-hour ACT courses will meet for 3 hours, once each week for 4 weeks, and finish before the ACT on April 14th and the SAT on June 5th. If you are interested in attending classes at other locations, call the Advantage or check their website for times and locations.

Tuition for either the ACT or the SAT/PSAT course is only $120.00 with all class materials included.  Students may participate in both courses for a reduced price of $210.00. Remember, the Minnesota Tax Credit for Learning Programs may offer a state tax deduction to parents with children who participate in this program.  For more information, you should speak with your tax advisor.

Registration/Information letters with available class times at participating schools will be mailed to the parents of all juniors and sophomores in early January. For further information, please call Richard at South Community Education at 612-668-4326 or visit their website.

Each class meets 4 times over 4 weeks.
