McCully’s Test Prep

We have been helping students master the college success skills that are necessary for test score improvement on standardized exams since 1993. Students who participate in a well-designed program that helps them to identify, analyze, connect, and find solutions usually see substantial improvements in not only their standardized test scores but also their academic habits and grades as well. Standardized tests are coachable when the coaching is part of a larger learning experience.

We use retired SAT and ACT tests along with a blend of materials designed by our staff. Our curriculum is innovative, specialized, and time-tested to give each student the best preparation possible. We offer practice test opportunities that simulate the test-taking experience with full-length practices, proctored by experienced professionals. As a critical component of test readiness, our diagnostic scoring profile from the practice test gives both teacher and student a comprehensive look at strengths and weaknesses.

Admissions officers use college entrance exams as predictors of college performance, and as a means to compare students from diverse educational backgrounds. College success skills – reading comprehension, vocabulary mastery, writing, grammar usage, and analytical reasoning – are interwoven to build standardized tests. These skills are invaluable both in and out of the classroom.


Beginning the school year 2015-2016 Michigan Public High Schools’ testing will be completely changed. The SAT will replace the current ACT testing program for all Michigan high school juniors. The College Board administers the SAT, a globally-recognized college admission test that lets students show colleges what they know and how well they can apply that knowledge. It tests students: knowledge of reading, writing and math subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms in Michigan.

Most colleges and universities accept either SAT or ACT test scores. Since the SAT and ACT show different strengths, mastery of each test can enhance a student’s value on the admissions table.
