ACT Boot Camp: July 12-17, 2020
Rising 9th – 12th Grade
ACT Boot Camp is an all-inclusive test prep program that provides students with the tools they need to prepare for, and excel on, the ACT test. Students will receive in-depth review of the exam materials, insight into strategies for succeeding on standardized tests, a comprehensive study plan, and extended online support. It also offers unique first-hand experiences into the world of Auburn Admissions, Career Services, Student Involvement, and Auburn Athletics! ACT Boot Camp is here to help students meet their full potential while also getting to experience all the fun summer camp can provide!
Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.
ACT Boot Camp includes:
- 20 hours of expert classroom instruction
- Experienced, expert instructors

- Real ACT practice questions and tests
- Course workbook
- Thorough presentations and explanations
- Easy-to-follow study plan

Four online review sessions are held in the weeks leading up to the fall ACT test dates. The interactive, one-hour online review sessions allow students to participate and ask questions of expert test prep instructors. The live-online review sessions are recorded—students can still benefit even if their schedules don’t allow live participation.
Meals will be provided in one of the newly-renovated campus dining locations. All dietary restrictions and allergies are taken into consideration for each meal.
Classes will take place in the newly renovated Mell Classroom Building. It is within walking distance from dorms, dining facilities, and other Auburn University Schools and Colleges.
Auburn Youth Programs partners with Education Testing Consultants (ETC) to provide courses specifically designed for ACT Boot Camp. The program is led by a team of former standardized exam question writers and test preparation experts who care about your success!
