We began Beechwood ACT Prep, Inc. in order to help students in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati area prepare for the ACT. Our instructional methods were born right out of our classrooms, and the content is taken directly from the ACT content. We fill-in the content gaps and connect the content that you know to this test. We have since grown to serve students from all over the Southeastern United States:  Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, West Virginia, Georgia, and South Carolina. If you can get here, we can help you! OPEN YOUR OWN DOOR!
