Millions of students are home from school due to the coronavirus outbreak – you probably need a good homeschool schedule, and fast.
It’s unclear how long schools will stay shuttered, so it may be best to plan for the long haul. (46 states’ schools are currently closed, and all schools in Kansas and Virginia are closed for the rest of the school year.) Download one of these free, printable homeschool schedules for the ACT and SAT to keep your student on track through the end of the school year.

Is Studying for the ACT or SAT at Home as Effective as a Class?
If your student is not used to studying for the ACT or SAT without a tutor or a class, we want to assure you that he or she can thrive in this online course, especially with the guidance of the homeschool schedule. Really, the self-discipline of working through an online course may lead to more improvement than would sitting in a class!
We designed the course to teach students, not just drill them with practice. Any practice your student completes builds their knowledge of the test content, so even completing 50% of the course aids their test prep efforts more than a simple review of old test prep materials.
Why 3 Months?
And, did you know that around 3 months is the perfect amount of time to prepare for the ACT or SAT? Students often report that they intended to spend more time prepping than they actually spent because of time constraints – school, extracurricular, etc. But these next few weeks will probably be different than what most of us know as our daily routine and provide a bit more time in the day for things like preparing for the test.
