Please note that the opportunity to do in-class instruction this summer is subject to guidelines published by the Minnesota Department of Health and the CDC.  Breakaway’s private, one-on-one instruction will be offered online if that presents a better option for your family.

Thinking about summer test prep?  Think Breakaway!

For current sophomores (Class of 2022) and juniors (class of 2021) planning to take the September 12th 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.
