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.  Breakaway was recently approved to deliver in-school ACT and SAT prep at the Blake School, subject to CDC and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidelines.  We will also offer several sections of prep at our office in St. Louis Park, subject, once again, to safety standards determined by the CDC and MDH.

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 with Breakaway in-person at the Blake School and in St. Louis Park

During the summers only, Breakaway offers our proven program of private instruction as well as small group instruction for those students interested in learning with a group of motivated peers. Designed for groups of 6-10 students, small group ACT instruction offers plenty of individualized instruction and expert guidance from Breakaway’s talented instructors.  The program also includes full-length practice exams, score reports and analyses to identify your areas of strength and weakness.  In addition, parents and students can expect thorough reviews of the following:

  • Comprehensive reviews of all commonly tested concepts in grammar, algebra I, geometry, algebra II, trigonometry, other advanced math topics, chemistry, physics and biology
  • Critical test-taking and time management strategies for all sections of the test
  • A proprietary and proven study guide that provides thorough overviews of each section of the test, including key concepts, hundreds of sample problems and critical insights about test-taking and time-management strategies
  • Access to weekend practice tests throughout the summer

Breakaway only has two more sections of small group prep available for the September 12th ACT.  All others have either started or are at capacity.  Here are the details on the available classes:
