MARCH 2 Success Information

https://www.march2success.com/main/video/1

We provide materials to help prepare students for college and a series of videos and infographics to help simplify the process of applying to college and finding financial aid options.

We provide assessment-based, customized lesson plans; allowing students to skip through what they already know. The program lessons provide information helpful for student grade improvement through direct application in the classrooms, review for state-required exams, or as refresher courses.

March2Success is a great tool for educators when it comes to state testing preparation, college application, and financial aid processes, as well as refresher courses on currently applicable classroom instruction content.

March2Success provides full-length practice tests for both the SAT and ACT. We provide a video series to help students understand the college admissions process and where to look for financial aid.

March 2 Success offers parents and mentors a program their children can use free of charge to help them meet their educational goals. Whether your student is preparing for college, military, or entering the civilian workforce, test scores can play an important role in their future.
