Test Prep


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 from Jason Franklin, a well-known and successful ACT/SAT test prep instructor. The program is offered in a series of on-line videos students can use to prep for either the ACT or SAT. This service is free to all EHS students until August 1st, 2022.

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. It is suggested that a personal email address is used instead of the school’s issued Gmail account. The school district’s filter may prevent students from receiving emails from Better Prep Success in the student’s issued Gmail account. Always exercise care when sharing or submitting personal data online.

To gain access to these online videos, students will be sent a link and instruction in their school Gmail account. You may also access the registration instructions on the Student Services page of Effingham High School’s website under “Resources and Links.”
We hope that this is a great resource for students as they prepare for their academic future.
