ACT Prep Camp at Augustana

ACT Prep Camp at Augustana

Augustana is offering an ACT Prep Camp designed to help students achieve their best possible score on the ACT.

Over June 4-7 (Monday-Thursday), students entering grades 10-12 in the 2018-19 will receive 24 hours of instruction over four days from accredited teachers in each of the key ACT areas: math, science, English, reading and writing. You must have completed Algebra 2 in order to participate in the camp. Students will learn strategies for mastering every section of the college entrance exams.

There’s also time for fun — camp attendees will get to experience life on a college campus, located in the heart of South Dakota’s largest city. Classes will take place in the new Froiland Science Complex, and students will stay on campus in residence halls.

From exploring the campus to the ability to ask questions, the 2017 ACT Camp attendees said the camp met their expectations. They felt more confident about taking the test after attending ACT Camp. For two attendees, they were able to increase their ACT scores significantly — which pushed them into a new scholarship category.

Who should attend?

Students who are:

  • Preparing to take the ACT
  • Interested in improving their ACT test score to increase opportunities for scholarships and admission to their schools of choice
  • Entering 10th, 11th or 12th grade in the 2018-19 school year

About the Camp

The ACT Prep Camp is provided in part with scholarship funds from the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation.

College admission officers agree that the ACT score is considered the second most important factor in the college application process. Improving your score can have a major impact on admission to your choice school — and potential scholarship awards. Many students decide their scores are “good enough” without realizing their true potential. Depending on your starting score, more points can help you to get into your dream college, expand your program choices and increase your scholarship opportunities.
