One-On-One Private Sessions
Each student will have a private session to help focus on each student’s particular needs. In addition, there will be time for the parents to speak with the instructor to answer any questions they have about the testing.
For families who would like to have a group session, additional students can be added for $50 each. This is a great option for families with multiple children, friends, or co-op groups. Only one student needs to sign up. Payment for additional students will be billed separately through an invoice at a later date.
*The Official ACT Prep Guide 2019-2020 or the Official SAT Study Guide (2018 or 2020 edition) is required for class. Students who plan to use a calculator on the test should have that with them during the class.
These bootcamps are for 9-12 grade students preparing to take the ACT or SAT tests.
The Road to College is Paved With… Tests
Home schooling allows parents the ability to make individual choices for students; however, students planning to attend college must prepare for and take college entrance exams. This alone can be difficult when a homeschooler does not regularly take standardized, timed tests.
ACT and SAT tests can be daunting, confusing, and intimidating to students who are not familiar with the tests and adequately prepared for the material. No matter which curriculum a student uses, there are universal skills required to succeed on the SAT and ACT tests.
Many students do not know which test would be better suited to their future plans, which skills are required for each test, or which subjects are tested. One of the best things a student can do to prepare for the test is to become familiar with these things.
Students should understand the time limits, which skills are needed, calculator use, and other important testing information before signing up to take a test.
This year, the college entrance testing world has another puzzling development: the college board has developed an “adversity score” that will be included in the score reported to colleges, but it will not be reported to the student. This could potentially change college admissions; however, this is the first year and will likely prove to be a difficult beginning for this process.
Students need to be aware of this when deciding whether to take the SAT or ACT tests. Students may need to consider which college and potential major they will pursue because some schools have specific testing recommendations. Some schools also have minimum required scores for one or more parts of these tests. If a student is still considering multiple colleges, they should be familiar with the desired range of scores when preparing for the test.
