With the school year now in full swing and the first ACT and the PSAT now behind us, it seems a good time to assess how standardized testing may figure into your student’s schedule over the coming year.  The following article provides some broad guidelines on when your student can take the standardized tests, how many tests to take and what students (and parents) can reasonably expect from the preparation they do for a given test or series of tests.  Please click here to learn more.

So tell me about yourself! Admissions interview preparation

It’s admissions interview season! Admissions interviews are normally optional and their significance in the application review process can vary from school to school. Busy students—who may not have much experience interviewing—might be tempted to skip this optional application component. But it’s another opportunity for them to explore whether a particular college is a good fit for them and gain comfort with these sorts of conversations. If a college recommends an admissions interview, it’s a good idea to do it.  Click here to learn more!

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!
