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.   

My daughter, a Direct Hits alum, received a $20,000 scholarship from her college for being a National Merit Finalist. She also received a one-time $2,500 scholarship from the National Merit foundation. Direct Hits is the best PSAT & SAT prep program available.

Upcoming Classes

ACT/SAT Weekend Boot Camp - 11/11 & 11/12 @ the Atlanta Speech School

Common Skills and Individual Strategies for the ACT and SAT

With the changing test taking landscape in 2017 around standardized tests, many students are opting to take both the ACT and SAT before deciding which test is best for them. This two-day camp explores common skills tested on the ACT and SAT as well as the individual strategies needed for optimum performance on each test.

Key components of the class:

  • Demystify the tests and provide strategies
  • Familiarity and practice with the ACT and PSAT
  • Focused review to ease stress
  • Improve confidence in areas of weakness
  • Provide individual feedback and evaluation to students and families

The class will run from 9 am to 4 pm and lunch and materials will be provided.

Those students enrolled in the course will receive information regarding the opportunity to take a free mock-test!

Courses Curated for Busy Students and Busy Families

Direct Hits recognizes that class offerings may not fit the complex schedules of students and their families. With that in mind, Direct Hits will schedule an ACT, SAT, PSAT, or college essay weekend course as needed. If your child and few friends/classmates/teammates would like to study together, then we will make it happen! 

ACT/SAT/PSAT Weekend Boot Camp:

$500/student (minimum of 4 students required)

College Essay Weekend Workshop:

$400/student (minimum of 3 students required)

Please note, Direct Hits is unable to form a Boot Camp on Demand unless participating families meet the required minimum number of students.

I just wanted to let you know with your help our daughter was admitted to 8 out of 9 schools she applied to! Thanks again for all of your great advice and time.
