Junior Earns Stand Out ACT Score

Junior Earns Stand Out ACT Score
After tutoring with Timarron College Prep for three months, Christina Gilchrest has scored an unbelievable 35 on the ACT (a perfect score is a 36).  This was her first time to take the test.  Christina ia a junior at Carroll Senior High School where she is a varsity golfer and serves as the team's co-captain.  At this point, she is undecided on her university but plans on majoring in Marketing and Finance.  

"TCP has delivered amazing results for both of our children," said Susan Gilchrest, Christina's mom.  "After spending time with Bobbie, Christina scored a 35 on the ACT the first time she took it. TCP gave her great confidence to head into the exam knowing exactly what to expect. We are thrilled with the results."

Christina is the daughter of Susan and Eric Gilchrest and is a resident of Southlake.
