Thinking about summer test prep?  Think Breakaway!

For current sophomores (Class of 2022) and juniors (class of 2021) planning to take the August 29th (or October 3rd) SAT, now is a great time to think about summer test prep.  Breakaway is pleased to offer a five-week prep class at the Blake School starting in July.  Classes will take place in-person subject to safety guidelines from the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health.

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.  Learn more about both below.

Small Group SAT Instruction at the Blake School

Breakaway is pleased to provide SAT instruction to small groups of students this summer.   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.
