Test Prep Walk-Ins


Important Notice
You MUST be registered through Acuity to attend either live test prep classes or online sessions.

Our instructors prepare materials and lessons ahead of time based on the number of students enrolled in a particular class. We will not delay the start of a class to print additional copies for “walk in” students.

Reporting Your Test Scores to Us


On the first day that SAT or ACT specific exams date scores are scheduled to be released, we will email students to log into either their SAT or ACT accounts to check.

It is very important that students email their results to JulieMitchell@TheCollegeMap.com for every test attempted as she compiles ongoing student data. A student’s data assists our test prep instruction team in evaluating our live prep session content as well as in tweaking a particular student’s test prep program.

She will then email “tweaks” to students and parents (part of the data keeping is monitoring a student’s ePrep online practice program, online prep practice progress, and live prep class attendance).
