Your ACT score is now one of the most important parts of your college application, if not the most important. In addition, most scholarships in the area are determined primarily by ACT score.
To put the significance of an ACT score in context, consider the other number that is important for college applications and scholarships: your high school GPA. Everyone understands how important it is to get a good GPA. The irony is that while most students and parents are willing to put in over 5,000 of hours of work over 4 years toward getting a good GPA, most students take the ACT with 0 hours of preparation. I think you already see where we’re going with this, but just consider: between your GPA and your ACT, where do you think your time is best spent to beat out the competition? You leave high school with two incredibly important numbers, a GPA and an ACT score – one of them you spent 5,000 hours on and the other you’re ok with spending zero hours on? Not us!
Imagine that your student skipped school for 4 weeks during our ACT Academy and got a 0% on every assignment at school during that period of time. The data tells us that if they improve their ACT score by merely 1 point during that time, it would be a better use of their 4 weeks than if they had attended school. Now, we are not advocating for skipping 4 weeks of school but we ARE showing you the silly logic behind skipping out on ACT prep because of a busy school schedule. Think about it.
Depending on your perspective, Olympia Prep could be considered expensive or relatively cheap. The difference between the two is an understanding of what it takes to be a test preparation program that actually WORKS. Buying Olympia Prep’s services is not like spending $200,000 on a sports car and money is no object for you. Buying Olympia Prep’s services is like buying a car that actually works rather than one that may not actually always work. Like you, we appreciate VALUE. We believe this will be the greatest investment you ever make – potentially paying back tens of thousands of dollars in scholarship money and hundreds of thousands of dollars in career salary trajectory based your student’s higher education path, which is often dictated so strongly by this test.
Ultimately what you want are RESULTS. You need a car that you know will actually work. And work really well. Our program contains resources unlike any other and commits the hours needed to actually get results. And we put our money where our mouth is with our money-back guarantee on your results.
If it was possible to achieve the results we are able to get in half the time and charge half the price, believe that we would do it that way instead. Do not be fooled into thinking that the one week “crash course/ boot camp” could possibly be as effective. With Olympia Prep, nothing is left to chance. Every student receives private tutoring. Every student takes 4 tests and completes more than 40 hours of ACT preparation created and improved methodically over nearly a decade of successful ACT preparation. Every student will have a detailed proprietary software breakdown of their test and will be given 4 free months of tutoring with over 6,000 questions of ACT curriculum built specifically for their individual strengths and weaknesses (we use your test data to create your own curriculum). We use data alongside our unique formula for success to bring you a preparation experience that we have down to a science at this point. You WILL get results. From the outside looking in, we understand that it can be difficult to appreciate the VALUE our customers can appreciate after completing our program. But, have faith that you are getting invested in something that WORKS and your success is based not on hope and simple exposure to the test, but on data, propriety proven formulas for success, and a track record to bolster our lofty claims. Welcome to Olympia Prep!
Why take it so many times? The reason the ACT is beatable is that it hardly changes from test date to test date! If you never study, there’s no guarantee you will go up each time, but the proctored exams in each Olympia Prep course or tutoring program come with feedback and tips for improvement. If you’re looking to study on your own, make sure you take the time to get whatever help you can on the things you don’t know or you will likely make the same mistakes again!
For most students, we find that the ACT is the easier test to beat with preparation. The SAT aims to be an aptitude test, asking difficult questions that students often perceive as trying to trick them. The ACT is a bit more straightforward. However, it has very limited time and a good pacing strategy is a must.
The problem with having these two tests to pick from is that often students will spend endless time preparing for both, when it is much better to pick one and stick with it.
However, we do run custom for students looking for National Merit Scholarships, which includes SAT and PSAT preparation. Please contact us with interest in this exclusive offering!
