SAT & ACT Prep
CCP has helped hundreds of Arizona students prepare for both the ACT and SAT exams. Last year, CCP helped ACT test takers score an average 4-point gain on their composite scores and SAT test takers scored an average of 190 points. We believe in the customized 2-front attack to test prep: provide student practice to work on content based on their weaknesses and create the structure to closely match and simulate the testing environment as often as possible.

Money, majors, test scores, acceptance rates and requirements, registration—the college to-do list is exhausting and overwhelming. CCP has high school counselors with decades of experience to assist in helping guide students and parents through the maze that is the College Application process. A CCP college counselor will sit down with parents and students to prepare a university plan based on realistic academic and financial considerations. This plan will include test score goals and a clear timeline of tasks to complete beginning as early as the student’s freshman year of high school—it’s never too early to begin planning!
There is money to be found! CCP offers assistance to families in searching out every available dollar in college scholarships. CCP families will receive regular updates on available scholarship opportunities. They may also opt to receive individual guidance on how to complete their own searches, or they can choose to have a qualified college counselor complete searches tailored to the student.
Math & English Tutoring
Too many students report understanding the covered content, but then, when the exam comes, the knowledge seems to vanish! At CCP, we incorporate practice exams into all subject tutoring. If given a simulated test within 2-3 days of an exam, students often perform better than they would have otherwise. For the largest performance boost, we believe that tutoring alone is necessary but not sufficient. Simulated test prep also must be part of any process.
