Two Trusted Education Leaders—One Incredible Collaboration

We are joining forces with a leading US standardized testing company.

Shorelight is thrilled to announce the Confident Start Initiative, in collaboration with ACT, the trusted leader in college and career readiness solutions that helps millions of students reach their educational and professional goals. 

Introducing Confident Start

The ACT/Shorelight Confident Start Initiative helps international students impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak stay on track and on time with their US education. Utilizing Shorelight’s American Collegiate Live (AC Live) distance learning program, Confident Start enables students abroad to begin their degree studies at home and earn up to a full year of academic credits, recognized at universities throughout the United States.

By participating in the Confident Start Initiative with Shorelight and ACT, colleges and universities allow their students to stay on schedule and seamlessly transition to their campus when they’re able to resume travel.

“This collaboration is a natural fit that will benefit students, parents, and universities,” said ACT CEO Marten Roorda. “ACT is committed to providing navigational pathways that help guide students to success in their education and careers. Through this agreement with Shorelight, ACT provides opportunities and assurance for students whose plan to complete high school and begin study in the US have been interrupted by this very unfortunate situation.”

Together with ACT, we look forward to helping your students reach their educational goals.
