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!
