Thinking about summer test prep? Think Breakaway!

If you or someone you know is the parent of a current sophomore (Class of 2019) or junior (Class of 2018), now is a great time to be thinking about summer test prep.  Summer before junior year (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.

When should my student take an ACT (or SAT) for the first time?

Perhaps the single most common question we get at Breakaway is “when should my student take the ACT (or SAT) for the first time?”  And though we are asked it less frequently, the second question is often “ACT or SAT?”  To provide some insights into each of these questions, I wanted to present some information for you to consider as you evaluate these questions for your own student.  Please 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!
