Because OTC is:
Motivational: We provide students with a “Why to Try.”
Engaging: Our courses are entertaining, encouraging, and captivating.
Concise and Easy-To-Use: Teachers are facilitators — they don’t have to create and teach the course. And students aren’t overwhelmed by our 8-page curriculum and 5-8 hours of instructional time per course.
Effective: Our 400+ school partners routinely see increases of 1-3 points on the ACT or 50-150 points on the SAT.
School-wide: ALL of your students – not just the highly-motivated or affluent – deserve the best test prep. We have courses for grades 9-12 and for all ability levels.
These North Kansas City Schools achieved great school-wide results after ALL of their juniors went through the OTC curriculum.
Hear What Our Partners Are Saying
“With 100% of our students taking the ACT, our average is 22.2, just 0.1 lower than the last year only our college-bound students took it (when only 55% took the ACT). This is the first time we have ever been over 22 since then—a great conversation piece with our community. Thanks OnToCollege with John Baylor— looking forward to your helping us with the SAT.”
Kevin Shelton | Principal, Johnsburg High School, and former Illinois State Principal of the Year
“I have been in education for 31 years now and this is the best program I’ve ever seen for increasing a student’s ACT score. I know because the research on my students shows the increase. One rarely hears students bragging and promoting an academic program, but they do OnToCollege with John Baylor. Our district is consistently rated in the bottom ten for being financially “well-off” yet we spend the money on this program because it is that beneficial to the students. “
Roger Ried | Principal, Southside High School, AR
“I started my teaching career with the support of the OnToCollege with John Baylor program, and it has made all the difference in my ability to help my students prepare for the ACT. OTC has allowed me to work smarter and not harder in my teaching. Of all the ACT test prep programs I’ve used, it’s easily my favorite because of the results it produces when the exam scores come back.”
Derrick Ford | Teacher, Livingston Central High School, KY
By using OnToCollege with John Baylor, our school’s average ACT score keeps increasing and is now well above the state average with 100% taking the ACT. This is even more impressive because our poverty rate has also increased over the years and is well above that state average as well.
OnToCollege (OTC) has been preparing our students and strengthening our college-going culture at Weeping Water for the past eleven years. Our presentations of the OTC program happen during our school day. The program is easy to use, affordable, fun, and data shows it is effective. Weeping Water students and staff enjoy and look forward to Hammering the Grammar.
