Direct Hits offers guidance on the college application process, helping to reduce anxiety for both students and parents. We specialize in targeted learning for students looking to excel on standardized tests, such as the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. This is not your old school "drill and kill" method of test prep. Our approach is to make what is normally a dreaded process into a fun and low-stress environment where we demystify what it takes to get accepted to college.
This four day camp, which includes a full mock ACT on June 17 (with accommodations as needed), is specifically designed for rising seniors looking to take the summer or early fall ACT and for rising juniors seeking a jump-start on test prep in advance of the junior year workload. It is the perfect class for any student to familiarize themselves with the ins and outs of the ACT. Each student will receive copies of the Direct Hits Vocabulary series and Direct Hits ACT workbook with separate answer key.
As with the ACT class, this course will include a full mock SAT (with accommodations as needed) on the first day (June 24). This class is perfect for any rising seniors seeking an intensive prep class before the summer and early fall SAT, especially those needing to reach a score threshold for recruitment. Additionally, this class is great for rising juniors as it covers all the same material as the fall PSAT, which will be used to determine National Merit Scholars. Each student will receive copies of the Direct Hits Vocabulary Series and Direct Hits SAT workbook with separate answer key.
Key Components of these classes:
Demystify the tests and provide strategies
Familiarity and practice with the ACT or SAT
Focused review to ease stress
Improve confidence in areas of weakness
Curated review materials that are instructional without being redundant
Classes will be held at The Atlanta Speech School and will run 10 - 2 (or longer for those with accommodations) on Monday/test day, and 10 - 1 Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Snacks and all materials provided.
Both classes are led by experts Paget Hines and Alexis Shephard. The courses will provide in-depth concept review as well as strategies for each section of the test. The camps will explore the skills tested on the ACT or SAT as well as the individual strategies needed for optimum performance on each test.
