Squash and SAT/ACT

For the 10th year in a row, Squash and Beyond will offer a squash training session combined with a standardized test preparation course. As the SAT and ACT have become increasingly similar, our curriculum is now able to focus on improving campers’ understanding of test strategies for both exams in two consecutive weeks. the week of July 5-12 will focus on the ACT test, while the week of July 12-19 will focus on the SAT test. Campers may choose from one of two week within the Squash and SAT/ACT program or participate in both weeks to practice both tests. Each class will be limited to 20 students, so the instructors are able to provide each camper with individual attention.The course is designed for campers entering sophomore year in high school or older. The SAT/ACT course includes multiple practice tests which will be given during the week.

This ACT/SAT course concentrates on the mathematical skills, Critical readying skills, as well as the test-taking techniques that students need to perform at a high level on the ACT/SAT test. In addition to the two hours of classroom instruction each day, students take two diagnostic tests during the week. At the end of week, students receive a personalized score report with the results and suggestions for further study after each test.

Campers will arrive on July 5 and during the first weekend will study 12 hours for the math section of the ACT test.
