Course Guarantee

If your child's exam score does not improve then they may re-enroll in our next course FREE!

"Our son had a dream of going to the University of South Carolina. He had excellent grades, but always had trouble with standardized testing. After trying a couple of programs for 5 months without much improvement, he started doing individual SAT/ACT Prep sessions at FCS with both Ms. McGee and Ms. Ray. After only 5 hours of sessions, he reached the target score he was looking for. Today he is at USC. We are very thankful for the excellent job these wonderful teachers did with our son, providing individualized training and help to reach his goal."

"I just wanted to let you know that our son made a 34 on his ACT science score the last time he took it, and that it is a direct result of the help you gave him on that section before the test. We are thrilled. He got a 31 overall and is going to take it again in hopes of making a 33 but we are thrilled and so thankful for your help."
