While the high school grade point average is the best indicator of college success, the colleges continue to utilize the SAT and ACT as an additional means to predict college readiness. In addition to admission decisions, colleges will use the SAT and ACT for placement into certain courses as well as for scholarships. Florida Bright Futures also requires SAT and ACT scores along with GPA and community service.

Recommended SAT/ACT Tutors:
The tutors listed below have been recommended by past and current CCHS Families. The College Counseling Department recommends that parents and students do their research on test preparation programs and interview potential tutors when you are able to determine what is most effective for the student's learning style and needs.
Additionally, all test preparation experts agree that having "benchmark" test results prior to tutoring is invaluable. This is why the college counseling profession has recommended for years that students take BOTH an ACT and SAT no later than the early spring of the junior year.
