Location: ONLINE, so the student is expected to log in from home
Who should attend: High school students
Time Zone: Eastern
Seminar length: 15 hours of ACT instruction and review across 4 weekday evenings + q&a on 2 evenings for both parents and students
SAT/PSAT: Students have attended this boot camp to improve their SAT and PSAT performance as well. Students gearing up for the PSAT in October will also benefit from this ACT Boot Camp. If interested in PrepAccelerator's exclusive SAT/PSAT events, visit PrepAccelerator.com/SATEvents.
Content: For each of the four required ACT sections, the boot camp will first review the necessary theory and strategies and then work out and/or review official ACT questions in a timed setting. The ACT Writing section will not be covered as there is negligible demand for this score from US universities.
Complexity and pace: This is an intensive and fast-paced webinar. The ACT questions reviewed range from simple to complex.
Course materials: A printed course handout and a printed PrepAccelerator handbook will be shipped by USPS to every registrant after the relevant registration deadline (see below). Around the same time, a detailed study plan will be sent to the parent email address that you will enter on the registration form.

PrepAccelerator does not guarantee a score improvement. Scores will not improve merely because a student attends the boot camp. Students are expected to practice what they have learned, thoroughly memorize the cheat sheets, complete the assigned homework, and attempt practice tests under timed conditions to see a score improvement. Success on the test is entirely about hard work. The boot camp gives students and parents the tools and the glide path to the target score, but it is the student's focused practice and relentless work that will cause the ascent to the target score. Parents are strongly encouraged to have a conversation about the student's commitment to the work involved and their own expectations before registering for the boot camp. While students who complete the assigned work can benefit from attending the boot camp closest to their target test date, a longer window between the boot camp and the test date is strongly recommended, especially during the busy school year. Ideally, parents and students should plan on a 6-8-week window between the boot camp and the test date during the school year so that students have adequate time to master the content and strategies as well as internalize the techniques taught at the boot camp. Shorter prep windows are also feasible provided the student and family are prepared to intensify their efforts for the upcoming test.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should students bring to the event?
Students should bring a notebook, a calculator (preferably the one they will use on test day), and writing instruments. Earphones/headphones/Air Pods are also important to prevent acoustic feedback caused by computer speakers that will compromise the student's ability to listen and participate.
What happens if internet outage or technological issues on PrepAccelerator's side cause a part of this event to be cancelled?
We will make every reasonable effort to restore our internet connection and resume the boot camp immediately. However, if the outage persists, class will be cancelled for that session or the remainder of that day. PrepAccelerator will make a recorded version of the missed portion available to students for a limited time.
My student will have to miss a session. Will you be providing a
recording or class notes for the missed session? If not, how can my
student make up the session?
We do NOT provide a recording or class notes for the missed session as the material is strictly proprietary. We recommend planning early and registering for the boot camp only if your student is able to attend the entire event.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Disruptive behavior during the session will not be tolerated. The
instructor reserves the right – in the best interests of motivated
attendees – to remove disruptive students from the virtual classroom and
block them from reentry.
We have zero tolerance for rude or condescending behavior or communications
from parent or student. Such
behavior will result in the entire family being barred immediately from
all PrepAccelerator's events and blocked from all PrepAccelerator's
communications. We enforce this policy VERY strictly for all our events and touchpoints.
PrepAccelerator reserves the right to cancel any individual's registration for this and other events.
