This study examines a pre-college academic enrichment program, the Skills Enhancement Approach. This program included the participation of 117 high school students from 10 schools who took sessions focused on topics related to the American College Test (ACT). Some of the preliminary results included: high parental support, improved overall student test performance on the simulated ACT, strong correlation between reading and science scores on the simulated tests, and improved student attitudes. In addition, students who lacked intellectual maturity and course pre-requisites achieved respectable scores with parental and technological support.
