Summer SAT & ACT BootCamps
Summer SAT and ACT boot camps
These are offered each year starting in June. The camps are week-long intensive introductory courses, designed for students who are just starting out, or who are looking for extra practice in a more structured environment.
Students begin with the Level 1 camp. For those looking to add a second week of instruction, we offer the Level 2 camps, which cover more challenging topics. Each day starts with students completing one or more sections of a test. After the sections are graded, students are split into smaller groups of three to four students based on skill level. The groups then work on strategies using guided practice with a tutor.
All bootcamps running in June 2020 will be held ONLINE, per the CDC's social distancing guidelines.
SAT Summer Camp
SAT Level 1 is designed for 9th, 10th and 11th graders. Increased familiarity and deliberate practice are the cornerstones of our program. Systematically broadening the number of question types a student can successfully negotiate will enable students to raise their scores. This camp uses material from both the PSAT and SAT. All students start at this level.
SAT Level 2 is focused more exclusively on the SAT. This advanced camp is designed for 10th and 11th grade students who have completed the Level 1 Camp and are looking to further improve their scores. The advanced camp provides students with the opportunity to practice difficult versions of the concepts learned in Level 1 Camp, and to expand into more advanced techniques and problem types. Because the camp is focused on SAT prep, we also devote significant time to developing essay skills.
ACT Summer Camp
ACT Level 1 is designed for students entering 9th, 10th, and 11th grade. Students, through a systematic regimen of deliberate practice using our carefully constructed approaches, will develop skills required for the ACT. The camp will cover the fundamental problem types featured on the four sections of the ACT. All students start at this level.
ACT Level 2 is a more advanced camp for graduates of Level 1 looking to further challenge themselves. Like the SAT camp, the advanced ACT camp provides students with the opportunity to practice difficult versions of the concepts learned in Level 1, and to expand into more advanced techniques and problem types.
9am to 3pm Monday through Friday
There is a 30 minute lunch break. Students are welcome to either bring their lunch or buy their lunch. There is a Wawa directly behind the Bryn Mawr office, and the Chestnut Hill office is near several shops including Cosimo’s Pizza and the Top of the Hill Cafe.
$995 per week
To reserve your space, we ask for a non-refundable deposit of $250, which will be applied to the full balance. The remaining balance of $745 will be due on the first day of class.
Each week of camp runs for five consecutive days, starting on Monday and ending on Friday. The start date for each available week is listed below. Class is held from 9am to 3pm every day.
If we do not have enough students signed up for any given class then we can not run the class and we will advise on another step.
