Mastering ACT/SAT

ACT/SAT exam prep that works - focused practice with real materials

Focused exam prep, clear targets

SAT bootcamp  

We live in the best time ever. Free access to tests and other preparation information for the SAT or ACT exams is ubiquitous. Please, take advantage of what you can, because if you are college bound – and more & more students are – getting the best score possible on these tests paves the way to the college of your choosing.

capED has been guiding students in North Carolina to better scores since our founding over 20 years ago. Our approach is meticulous. We sweat the small stuff with our students, because knowing HOW to READ the exam and what to be aware of is often MORE important than just WHAT you know. Expert instruction is key to developing this skill.

We are focused on two things: helping students become better students and preparing them to excel at their SAT/ACT exams.

capED ACT/SAT Seminars

Seminars are sets of 8 2-hour meetings spanning multiple weeks, and are generally scheduled prior to specific exam sittings.  Students will go through timed practice exams in a typical test-taking environment. Each class session will include addressing a different section of the exam or different question types. We will meticulously analyze Math and Verbal questions and review approaches for streamlining the test-taking. Class sizes range from 5-8 students, so sign up early to ensure your space.  Schedules are constantly evolving, so please call to customize a seminar for your group or team.

Either ACT or SAT College Board text required.

Seminars are scheduled around national test dates, and run typically 4-5 weeks prior to the exam sitting. Please feel free to sign up for a Seminar and contact us directly to tailor a course to suit busy schedules.

capED ACT/SAT BootCamps

We hold BootCamps regularly, typically the Saturday prior to the exam date. A BootCamp is a focused 8-hour period of study and/or refresher on students’ exam skills – from 9:00a to 5:00p. We will go through an exam, completing sections in the allotted time to help with pacing and to recreate the exam environment. Then capED will take students through each question and have engaged, detailed dialogue about question structure, how to arrive most efficiently at the answers, and then tips/tricks for being prepared for attacking the exam most effectively. This test prep session will ensure your student is ready on exam day.

Test materials provided.
