ACT/SAT Information


Effingham High School and Effingham Unit 40 are excited to offer to all Effingham High School students a free ACT/SAT Preparation service.

Effingham Unit 40 has purchased the Better Prep Success (https://betterprepsuccess.com/) from Jason Franklin, a well-known and successful ACT/SAT test prep instructor. The program is offered in a series of online videos students can use to prep for either the ACT or SAT.

Better Prep Success is an ACT/SAT test preparation opportunity that is strictly voluntary for students. In the sign-up process, participants will be asked to supply an email account. Students should use their Effingham Unit 40 (@unit40.org) school email address. Always exercise care when sharing or submitting personal data online.

Students must submit a Google form to gain access to these online videos. To complete the
Google form,
● Go to https://ehs.unit40.org/.
● Under EHS in the navigation bar, expand the menu and choose Student Services. Under
“Resources & Links”, click the “Better Prep Success Access Form”.
● Complete the form.
● After submitting the form, the student will click on the link for instructions to access the
test prep materials.
We hope that this is a great resource for students as they prepare for their academic future.
