ACT Boot Camp to be held at MMA January 2020

To help students maximize their ACT performance, Missouri Military Academy will host a Tutors Across America ACT Weekend Boot Camp on MMA’s campus in Mexico, Missouri, on January 24-26, 2020. The camp is open to the public, and MMA cadets are encouraged to attend.

With a proven track record of success, the ACT Weekend Boot Camp has shown dramatic results in improving test scores. On average, cadets who attend the ACT Weekend Boot Camp average a 3-7 point increase, which represents a 30-40% percentile point jump. To put that in perspective, that’s the difference between scoring in the 50th percentile and scoring in the 80th percentile. For cadets who already score above average, it could be the difference between scoring in the 80th percentile and an Ivy League-level 96th percentile.

The boot camp enrollment fee is $299. MMA cadets receive a 50% discount on their enrollment with registration code MISSOURIMILITARY.

Generally considered one of the most important factors that colleges and universities use in determining acceptance and scholarships, a high ACT scores can mean the difference in thousands of dollars in scholarships, making this a worthwhile investment for students whose post-graduate plan includes a college or university.

Testimonials from Former ACT Boot Camp Attendees

“This was a fun class and it improved my score by 6 points!”

“With the weekend I took the course my science and math scores improved by 50% percent. Well worth my weekend to greatly open my chances to more collages.”

“Useful information. We take a practice test at the beginning, then went over tips for each section and took each section again. This was very useful because we were able to see the improvement of our scores just over a span of 2 days.”

“This program is very helpful to any college-bound student. They help you not only with test advice but life advice as well. I experienced a 7 point improvement in all sections. Because of this program, I have received an extra 6,000 dollars a year for my university.”

“In just a weekend my ACT improved a ton. I learned so much more in this weekend than I have in all my studying I’ve done alone combined. Definitely recommend this for anyone who needs to improve their score or is new to the ACT.”

“This class has helped me insanely well. I brought my average ACT score up by 7 points on the practice exams and I plan to keep working on the tips he gave us to perfect my test taking abilities!”
