UTC understands the vital role that college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT play in college admissions. Properly prepared students are more likely to perform to their highest potential. UTC's Test Prep is here to help students in the Chattanooga area meet their potential through our SAT Prep courses (ACT Prep Courses) and SAT/ACT Summer Institutes.
