  1. Which classes should I be taking in high school?

Your Livius Prep college counselor can help you develop a smart approach to the courses you need to take (and when) that will help you build a strong transcript to accompany your college applications. Your objective should be to provide each college with a reason to want to select you. If you find that your GPA is not high enough or want to improve your test-taking skills to give you an edge over your peers, we may recommend an individualized Livius Prep academic tutoring program to boost your skills and confidence.

  1. Should I take the SAT or ACT?

Both the ACT and SAT are accepted by every college in America. There is no advantage to taking one test over the other, nor is one “easier” or “harder,” but taking the test that best fits your skills and abilities will help you earn the highest scores.
