Cartersville High School ACT Bootcamps with Edison Prep

Edison Prep is coming to Cartersville High School to offer two on-site ACT Bootcamps.  These ACT Bootcamps cover all four sections and the writing section from top to bottom and leave students with ample, real ACT practice tests to cement their learning between the bootcamp and the ACT exam. 

ACT Bootcamp Overview:
  • 8 hours of classroom instruction
  • 1 full-length graded and analyzed mock ACT test (a pre-bootcamp diagnostic test)
  • Taught by the only tutor in history to have gotten back-to-back-to-back perfect 36's on the ACT.  Approximately 18 people out of approximately 50,000 get a 36 in Georgia each year (link).  
  • Includes break for lunch (lunch is casual and provides a great opportunity for students to discuss college admissions and ask questions about preparing for the college application process)
  • Location: Cartersville HS, Engineering Room right across from the administration/counseling office
  • Price: $249 (includes all materials)
  • More detailed information on the Bootcamp is at the bottom of this page.
Upcoming ACT Bootcamp Dates for the 2017-2018 School Year:
  • Fall 2017 ACT Bootcamp at Cartersville High School:
    Sat 9/30 - 9:00am-12:15pm - Diagnostic Mock ACT
    Tue 10/17 - 8:00am-4:30pm - ACT Bootcamp
Additional Details: 
  • The ACT is an exam that is much more amenable to a "bootcamp"-type format than the SAT. While both tests require persistent effort to excel at, the section structure of the ACT allows dedicated students to front-load the majority of the material in a group bootcamp session and follow it up with on-their-own practice and/or individual ACT tutoring. Students leave the bootcamp with at least 6 real tests with which to practice with.  
  • Students who do the best tend to do significant homework between the bootcamp and the actual test. Finishing in time is more challenging on the ACT than on the SAT.
  • Parents are strongly encouraged to check in with their students often after the bootcamp and before the ACT exam to monitor homework progress.  The last six bootcamps have seen the highest-improving person improving at least 4 points more than the lowest improving person, and homework after the bootcamp is the main driver of that difference.  
  • It is strongly recommended that students take the exam immediately following the course, while the material is fresh.
  • Students bring a brown bag lunch with them, plus pencils and a calculator (see below).
  • Students are highly encouraged to utilize a TI-83 or TI-84 model calculator on the ACT (and SAT, for that matter). Not having one places students at a severe disadvantage on the math section.  Additionally, the ACT prohibits certain models of the TI NSpire (link).  

Materials Include:
  • "The Bulb" (Edison Prep's very own ACT guide)
  • The Real ACT Study Guide, 3rd Edition (from the makers of the test)

Testimonials from recent on-site ACT Bootcamp attendees:

"<My student's> score increased from a 30 last Spring to a 33 after taking your class!  I am so thrilled that she had such a big jump.  We are now hoping for a full scholarship. Thank you so much for your help - money that was VERY well spent!!!" - Mom of a January 2015 Harrison HS Bootcamp attendee

"Edison Prep provided an extremely affordable ACT bootcamp that proved to be an invaluable experience for my son, offering great tips, a full length graded practice exam and excellent resource materials. My son was able to utilize what he learned, study for the exam and achieve a composite score of 35." - Mom of a Feb. 2014 Fort Payne, AL Bootcamp Attendee

“My son recently completed the Edison Prep ACT Boot Camp at Harrison.  The mock test score he received on the 1st day motivated him to strive for better.  He did this by getting the most he could from the class and diligently completing all of the take-home tests he received at the bootcamp.  We were so excited to see his scores when they came out!” - Mom of a June 2014 Harrison Bootcamp Attendee

"Thank you so much for your help in this process. <My son> connected with you and was as motivated as I have ever seen him.  I got what I paid for and much, much more.” - Mom of a June 2014 Rosemary Beach FL test-taker
