Chad Cargill ACT Workshop

Any student interested in increasing their ACT score to earn scholarships or get into college should consider Chad Cargill’s ACT workshop. This is the only workshop given by someone who has taken the ACT 18 times and increased their score from a 19 to a 32.

The workshop covers what will be on the test and how to master successful testing techniques. This is not a practice test, but the workshop does cover general ideas about each of the sections.
