Fall is an important time for high school seniors applying to colleges, and Huntington Learning Center is proud to be a part of the college journey for so many students across the nation. Huntington encourages all students to reach for their goals and pursue higher education, which will equip them with skills and knowledge that will last a lifetime.
Co-Founder and CEO, Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center reminds parents of high school seniors that fall is not only prime season for finalizing those college application packages, it’s the best time to retake the SAT and ACT. “Teens who took the SAT or ACT in September and October have gotten their scores back now, and if they feel like they could have done better, there’s still time to try again before college applications are due,” Huntington says. “Many colleges consider students’ ‘superscore,’ which is the combined highest individual section scores across any test dates (check with individual colleges/universities to confirm their SAT or ACT score-use practice and whether they consider highest section scores across test dates, single highest test date scores, or something else). So, even students who performed well on one section of the SAT or ACT but not on others should consider a retake in December.”
Huntington also encourages students who need individualized SAT or ACT prep help to contact Huntington about its highly successful test prep programs. “Every year, we work with thousands of students to help them raise their college entrance exam scores and get into the colleges of their dreams,” she says. In a study of Huntington students graduating high school in 2018, the average increase for students after completing a prep program was 226 points on the SAT (a 22% increase) and 5.3 points on the ACT (a 24% increase). Of the Huntington students surveyed the average scholarship offered was $57,200, and the total scholarships awarded to Huntington students surveyed was $140 million (results are based on a survey of 4,157 Huntington students graduating in 2018).
