Thinking about summer test prep?  Think Breakaway!

For current sophomores (Class of 2023) and juniors (class of 2022) planning to take the July 17th or September 11th ACT, now is a great time to think about summer test prep.

The summer before junior or senior year is one of the best times of the year to work on test 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.  Breakaway offers a variety of small group instruction options in addition to the private, one-on-one instruction we provide every week of the year.

Small Group ACT Instruction at The Blake School

Now in our seventh year, Breakaway is pleased to provide ACT instruction to small groups of students through the Summer at Blake program.  All students are welcome to attend.  Classes will be held on Blake’s Minneapolis campus, located at 511 Kenwood Parkway, Minneapolis, 55403.

If you want plenty of individualized attention and an opportunity to learn alongside a small group of motivated peers, this class is for you. The program also includes full-length practice exams, score reports and analyses to identify your areas of strength and weakness. If you’re determined to get a top score and need expert, guided instruction, Breakaway can help you reach your goals.
