We equip schools and teachers with the tools to help students confidently prepare for the SAT and ACT.

These tests are a critical part of college admissions, and every student deserves a chance to prepare. Yet test prep courses and private tutoring are often costly or hard to access. Our programs reduce this inequity by bringing a high quality test prep program into schools that serve students from low-income backgrounds.

More Than Just Test Prep

Doing well on the SAT and ACT requires more than tips and tricks. Students need to have knowledge about the college application process, best-fit schools, why the test matters, and how it can change their college-going trajectories; they need to feel motivated to use this test as a lever to unlock opportunity; and they need the academic skills to perform effectively. All of these things combined build their Test Confidence™, leading to results that set students up for success in college and beyond.

Test Confidence™

Unlocking opportunity

Test Confidence™ results from the knowledge, skills, and motivation that lead to increased test scores and success in college and beyond. We build Test Confidence™ by training teachers at our partner schools to deliver the CollegeSpring curriculum to their students during the school day, throughout their junior year. We also equip teachers with teaching materials and detailed student data, so they can better meet their students’ unique needs.

 

Our Results

Our programs help students significantly increase their SAT or ACT score–a big leg up during the college admissions process. Our program results in:
Higher Scores

Higher Scores

CollegeSpring students enter their junior year scoring an average of 225 points lower than the average SAT score for non-fee-waiver users. After CollegeSpring, they gain an average 100 points, closing a significant portion of this gap.

Increased Confidence

Increased Confidence

Our curriculum gives students the knowledge and motivation they need to to boost their prospects during college admissions. Four out of five students reported that CollegeSpring made them more prepared for the SAT and more confident about the college admissions process.

Happy Partners

100% of administrators at our parter schools are satisfied with CollegeSpring's service, and 96% of partner instructors rate CollegeSpring staff as supportive and responsive to their needs.
