Thinking about the ACT? Think Breakaway this summer!

If you or someone you know is the parent of a current sophomore (Class of 2020) or junior (class of 2019), now is a great time to think about summer test prep.  Summer before junior or senior year is one of the best times of the year to do prep as students are free of the distractions of the school year and can really focus on their ACT (or SAT) prep work.  Breakaway is pleased to provide a range of convenient test prep options for your student this summer.  To learn more about options to prepare for the NEW July 14th ACT (primarily class of 2019 students), please click here.  To learn more about options to prepare for the September 8th ACT (classes of 2019 and 2020), please click here.

Get Started!

Ready to get started? Breakaway’s innovative approach to test prep is unrivaled.  Our test prep process typically begins by having students complete a full-length practice test. However, if your student has completed a real ACT, SAT or other proctored practice test in the past few months, the results of that test can also be used.  Breakaway offers proctored practice tests every weekend in our dedicated testing center.

Practice tests are an invaluable component of the test prep process, and give students critical experience dealing with the pressure and duration of a real test in a classroom full of their peers.  Click here to register for a test!
