FAQs
 
Why do the ACT and SAT matter?
The ACT and SAT scores are generally the most important factor that colleges and universities use in determining scholarship offers. The test scores are second only to GPA in terms of admissions decisions. A good ACT or SAT score can mean thousands (or tens of thousands) in scholarships.
 
As an example, by scoring a 22+ on the ACT, students often qualify for small scholarships at most universities. By scoring 26+, many schools offer mid-level scholarships (thousands to tens of thousands of dollars at most universities, and by scoring a 30+, many students qualify for full tuition and full-ride scholarships (potentially over $100,000 in savings if attending an expensive private university).
 
What’s considered a good ACT score?
The ACT is scored on a scale of 1-36. The national average is around a 20-21 most years.  The SAT is scored on a scale of 200-1600.  The national average is around 1,000 most years.
 
How much does the ACT/SAT Weekend Boot Camp improve scores?
The weekend prep camps are averaging 3-7 point improvements per student on the ACT, and 150-200 points on the SAT.  That’s the difference between scoring in the 50th percentile, and scoring in the 80th percentile. Or for students who already start out above average, it could be the difference in the 80th percentile, and the Ivy League level 96th percentile.
 
Is test prep really worth it?
It depends. If a student doesn’t plan to attend college, or if his/her family can pay full tuition price at the university of their choice without a hassle, there may not be a need. But if you’re like the majority of families who can’t imagine how they’d pay the insane $50k+ in annual tuition charged by many private universities, test prep can be a worthwhile investment. As our instructor Ryan explained: “The highlights of my career are when students send me excited emails and messages to report their amazing test scores and college admissions letters. But some of my favorite messages are from parents thanking me for helping their children earn full-ride scholarships.
 
One parent whose child received an amazing scholarship to a California school shared: ‘She got a full ride scholarship worth $160k! We’re taking her college fund and spending it on a fabulous cruise!’”
