Progress Learning and Horizon Education Have Teamed up to Make SAT and ACT Prep More Accessible for All

As many colleges across the U.S. opt to not use the SAT and ACT in the admissions process, over 20 states—including Nevada, Indiana, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, and more—are now making the SAT or ACT a mandatory summative assessment for high school graduation. With all of these new changes, many students and teachers are wondering how best to prepare for these all-important exams. Lucky for you, the team at Progress Learning has been working hard behind the scenes these past few months, finding ways to make SAT and ACT test prep even more accessible to every single student across the country.

As educators, it is critical that our students are learning in a safe, effective, and equitable environment. Our classrooms have a wide variety of learner profiles and meeting the needs of each and every student is our top priority. From ESL/ELL students to students with learning disabilities, IEPs and 504s, we must work to ensure accessibility for all students to engage them in appropriate learning experiences that meet their individual and unique needs.
