Better Prep. Better Scores.
Online and small group prep now available for
the ACT and the SAT.

If you’re the parent of a current sophomore or junior, now is a great time to be thinking about summer test prep.  Summer before junior year (or senior year) is the ideal time to prepare for the ACT or the SAT as students are free from the pressures and distractions of the school year.  And for you rising seniors, the late summer SAT and mid-September ACT are terrific opportunities for you to add to your scores!

In this time of uncertainty, a solid test score can help bolster your student’s candidacy at thousands of colleges and universities, including every one of the nation’s currently test optional schools.  Even better, unlike your student’s GPA, test scores can be improved in a relatively short period of time, so with a determined effort this summer, many students can realize a significant improvement in their test scores by fall.

During the summer, Breakaway offers a variety of test prep options to accommodate students’ summer schedules, learning styles and ACT/SAT goals.  These options include online and in-person small group instruction at a range of locations around the Twin Cities. Breakaway can also create customized, do-it-yourself small group prep classes to accommodate busy summer and/or sports schedules.

Breakaway is offering the small group prep classes during the summer of 2022; all students are welcome to attend!
