Student and Parent Testimonies

"I wanted to thank you again for everything your program did for my son. He did indeed bring up his math and science scores to make a 31 on the ACT that he took in October using your voucher. Bless you all for what you do for minority students that just need a little direction to do their best on the ACT."

"You got to have the ACT score with the grades. Thanks to the University of Arkansas’ ACT Academy, I’ve scored the highest I’ve ever done in two categories. Jumping 7 points higher in English, and 3 in Math!!"

"The Academy not only helped me achieve my goal score, it helped me break out of my shell, overcome my shyness as well as the fear I had of speaking in front of people. Now, I am a more confident person overall. I wanted to thank you for helping me achieve my goals as well as helping me grow as in individual."
