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, the results of which can be used to develop a customized program of instruction. If your student has recently completed a real ACT or SAT, we can also evaluate and use those results. 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.
