BROOKHAVEN, Miss., May 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nestled in historic downtown Brookhaven, Mississippi is a hidden educational jewel - the Mississippi School of the Arts (MSA). The school is filled with students from all across the United States who have big dreams and with faculty who strive to help them reach their goals. For some, a big hurdle is achieving an impressive ACT score so that scholarships and dreams of free college tuition become a reality. This is where the implementation of Jumpstart Test Prep (Jumpstart) aids students. Jumpstart recently released ACT improvement results from MSA, whose junior class used the Jumpstart Complete ACT prep review to prepare for the state-administered February 2021 ACT® exam (American College Testing). Following completion of Jumpstart's complete ACT prep review, over 60 percent of the students had an average ACT English score improvement of +4.81 points over their best prior attempt. Similarly, the school had 56 percent of its students improving their Science scores by an average of +2.85 points and more than 60 percent improving by an average of +3.81 points in Reading and +2.4 points in Math test sub-scores.
