The ACT is a college readiness exam used for college admission purposes as an alternative to the SAT exam. Parents and students always ask about the differences between the SAT and the ACT. Simply put, the ACT is more of a knowledge-based test, while the SAT is more of a pattern-based test.
Noumena also helps students prepare for their Advanced Placement (AP) exams. As there are over 30 AP courses available, we do our best to provide interested students with the resources they need to improve and excel in their respective courses. AP lessons through Noumena vary in interest and subject, so it is best for interested students to ask our administrative staff and teachers about available resources and assistance.
Noumena Education Initiative’s Boston Thanksgiving Program’s provides students with the greatest impact in the shortest amount of time. Past attendees have all seen dramatic improvement over the short duration of the program, with average jumps in the SAT I Evidence-Based Reading and Writing of over 100 points and an average 8-point improvement in each section of the Reading and English portions of the ACT.
