LOS ANGELES – College Application Training announced today that the SAT/ACT Test Prep Course will  be held from June 29 to July 29 in Los Angeles, CA, according to Managing Director, Chelsea M. Hackett.

“We are very excited about the start of the SAT/ACT Test Prep Course,” said Chelsea.  Summer is a great time to focus on preparing for the SAT or ACT tests because student distractions are limited. This is another way that we help students to get a head start on applying to college.”

The College Application Training SAT/ACT Test Prep Course is a six week course that combines strategies to “beat” the test with old fashioned cram work while injecting some humor along the way.  Through targeted exercises, games and high-impact processes, students will:

  • Learn how to reframe their approach to the test that will lower stress while increasing scores.
  • Apply one small adjustment that will immediately improve their scores.
  • Discover short-term strategies to increase scores.
  • Practice longer-term strategies that will give them an advantage going into college.

The SAT/ACT Test Prep Course is open to high school seniors and rising juniors. Each session is four hours long and the class meets three times a week.  The course will also have follow up sessions in September. More information is available at the CollegeApplicationTraining [dot] com website.

The SAT/ACT Test Prep course is the first part of the College Application Mastery Program (CAMP) curriculum, which is a detailed monthly, eight course intensive program that uses college seminar type classes to go in-depth on each component of the college application process.  The CAMP program runs from September to December.

College Application Training is managed by Chelsea M. Hackett, who has over 20 years experience with the college application process. She attended the University of Southern California (USC) on a merit scholarship and graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a dual degree in International Relations and French. Chelsea obtained an MFA in screenwriting from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, where she was the recipient of various accolades including the Mary Pickford, Frank Sinatra, USC Associates and Women in Film scholarships. By combining organizational skills learned from juggling multiple scripts and productions to her SAT/ACT prep and essay coaching, Chelsea designed a program to train students to create great college applications with minimum stress and maximum individuality. Using these techniques, her students have been accepted to USC, UCLA, NYU, GWU, and Columbia University, among others.
