As of Spring of 2018 the West Virginia Department of Education has chosen the SAT as the new statewide standardize test to replace the ACTs. Also the SATs will be given at most WV public high schools for free. Due to this change, we will be changing the content and dates of our boot camps to reflect this change starting in Fall 2018. Our current ACT camps cover the same material as the SATs but will be more focused on the SAT style next Fall.

As of Spring of 2018 the West Virginia Department of Education has chosen the SAT as the new statewide standardize test to replace the ACTs. Also the SATs will be given at most WV public high schools for free.

Identify your math strengths and weaknesses, build on existing skills, play fun and challenging math games, daily practice in an average pacing of 1 question per minute, reassessment at the end of the camp so students are prepared to continuing studying independently

Sponsored by West Virginia Science Adventures & MU College of Science

Our goal is to:

  • allow students to identify their weakest skills
  • collaborate with their peers and the instructor to build on existing knowledge
  • work daily to practice an average pacing of 1 question per 1 minute
  • reassess their skills at the end of the week so they are prepared to continue studying on their own before the exam
