Award-Winning ACT & SAT Prep in Grapevine
A lot of test prep companies want to force your kid into online programs. For a lot of students, that simply doesn’t work. We offer both in-person and online prep.
Big Score Gains
With an average gain of 210 points on the SAT and 3.8 points on the ACT, we get students the score they are capable of and maximize their admissions chances.
Top 1% Tutors
Better tutors mean better scores for your kid. Our tutors have scored in the 99th percentile and passed selective teaching auditions to ensure they can connect with students.

A higher tutor standard means better scores for your student.
Tutor quality is the single most important component of test prep, and our goal is to be the pickiest prep provider in existence. We start with a top 1% score requirement, which immediately cuts 99% of the population out of consideration. But high test scores don’t ensure a good tutor, so we then have candidates go through teaching auditions. Once we make those cuts, we then put tutors through our proprietary training program. It’s a selective process that yields a better experience for your student.
Last year, we hired fewer than 3% of our tutoring applicants.
Drop us a line. We’re ready to help.

Grapevine, Southlake & Colleyville Average SAT & ACT Scores
Grapevine, Southlake and Colleyville have some very strong high schools, and the average SAT and ACT scores are significantly higher than national and state averages. For reference, the average SAT score is around 1050, and the average ACT is a 20.8.
We urge caution, however, in trying to compare two similar schools based solely on test scores. SAT and ACT scores reflect a variety of factors, and while they can offer a general glimpse of the academic level of a student body, it’s not possible to say that one school is a “better school” simply because it has a bit higher average SAT or ACT score.
|High School||Average SAT||Average ACT|
|Colleyville Heritage High School||1240||28|
|Grapevine High School||1240||28|
|Carroll High School (Southlake)||1340||30|
|Grapevine Faith Christian School||1240||28|
Grapevine & Southlake SAT Prep & ACT Prep FAQ
We do both in-person and online ACT and SAT prep in Grapevine & Southlake. Below are our answers to the most common questions we get.
Our average score improvement on the SAT is currently 210 points, and our ACT improvement average is between 3 and 4 points. Keep in mind, however, that improvement potential varies depending on where the student starts. A student with a 900 on the SAT is likely to see a larger improvement than a student with a 1300. However, even if that student with a 1300 “only” moves up to a 1420, that is a very big 120 points in the college admissions world. We have several Grapevine SAT prep and ACT prep options, and which option you pick will generally affect improvement, too.
We do a few things. First, we improve our students’ content ability. The SAT and ACT are both content-driven tests now, and the days of getting major jumps from little tricks are gone. We do have a few tricks, but the bulk of the work comes from actually getting better at algebra, grammar, etc. Next, we try to remedy any particular weaknesses a student has. For example, if he or she is running out of time on the reading section, we do some things to help the student either read more efficiently or pursue a strategy that doesn’t involve reading every part of every passage. Finally, we are all about spending time in official practice tests. Knowing the underlying content is great, but there is no substitute for doing real tests problems. Having the student go over official problems that he or she missed with an expert instructor is probably the most effective way to spend time once the basic content has been covered.
Both programs use the same instructors and the same curriculum. Private tutoring is more efficient and is often more effective for most students. Some students prefer group settings, however. A lot of this comes down to personal preference. We have intentionally priced our private tutoring options to be as price-competitive as possible because we really believe in its value. We offer a full range of Grapevine SAT prep and ACT prep options, though, and we believe all of them are highly effective.
For most students, the answer is either! The tests are quite similar these days, and nearly every college will consider either test equally. However, some students seem to have a score disparity between the two exams. It is often tough to predict which students will have a significant difference between the tests, though. The most accurate way to figure out which test to take is to get our free SAT vs. ACT diagnostic test.
We have a hard cap of ten students, but most of our courses are more like 5-8 students. We intentionally keep our ACT & SAT prep classes small because we think this fosters a better learning environment. We want students to feel comfortable enough to ask questions as they arise and for the instructor to have a good feel for what is going on with each student.
There are a couple options. One is to sign up for one of our SAT prep classes and then add a couple sessions of private tutoring to cover the differences present on the ACT. The SAT and ACT are very similar now, so this option works well. The other option is to simply sign up for private tutoring. All of our private tutoring options can hit both the SAT and ACT. We’ve had plenty of students take both routes, so give us a call to talk about what might be best for you.
Yes, absolutely. We offer private tutoring across all of DFW, including the mid cities. We’ve had tons of students in the surrounding area, including Southlake, Colleyville, Trophy Club, Keller, Roanoke and North Richland Hills. In most cases, you can have sessions in home or at a public library. We will use the address you provide during registration to match you to one of our nearby tutors.
First, no, it is not unusual. We regularly hear from parents whose son or daughter has a very lackluster score on the SAT despite being great at school. First, you have to understand that the SAT and ACT are both very different than high school tests. The idea behind both tests is to take reasonably basic content and test it in ways that require problem solving. So right off the bat, there’s the potential that your son or daughter, who is doing great in Calculus, could simply be rusty on Algebra 1 topics that he or she did in 8th grade. Also, because the SAT and ACT both seek to test problem solving abilities, the tests look and feel very different than high school tests do, particularly in the math section. Memorizing steps simply doesn’t work.
The good news in all of this is that good students who are underperforming typically see great results from SAT prep. We’ve had some Grapevine SAT prep students who have had astonishing improvements because they were smart, hardworking kids who simply needed some targeted instruction.
