Camps are designed for both students who are just starting out or for students looking for extra practice in a more structured environment.
Registration for the 2017 Summer Camps is closed. Thank you for a great summer! Please check back for more information for the 2018 Summer Camps.
MJ Test Prep provides structured, intensive training to give you the competitive edge on both the PSAT/SAT and ACT. Created by Dr. Matthew Joseph, the curriculum covers all crucial areas of the SAT & ACT. Camps run in both the Bryn Mawr and the Chestnut Hill locations.
MJ Test Prep Summer Camps
Starting in June, MJ Test Prep will offer these week-long intensive introductory courses for the SAT and the ACT. We will offer the first level for all students, and then, a second level for students who have completed level 1 and looking to further challenge themselves. Each day will start with sections of a test, and then, students will be split into smaller groups of three to four students per group, and they will work on strategies with guided practice with a tutor.
Though all students start in Level 1, students will be challenged and placed into smaller groups based upon how they scored on both their PSATs from 10th grade and on the sections of the test they take each morning. If you are unsure of which test to prep for, we offer diagnostic practice tests.
The SAT Vs. The ACT
The SAT and the ACT are both universally accepted by colleges, and they are equally weighted assessment tools. Each of the tests offers its own advantages that can be strategically utilized. Like the ACT, the math on the SAT is more closely aligned with high school curriculum, and the writing sections are nearly identical. The good news is that there is overlap for those preparing for both tests.
SAT SUMMER CAMP
Level 1 is designed for 9th, 10th and 11th grade. Increased familiarity and deliberate practice are the cornerstones of our program. Systematically broadening the number of question types a student can successfully negotiate will enable students to raise scores. This camp uses material from both the PSAT and SAT. All students will start at this level.
Level 2 is focused more on the SAT. This advanced camp is designed for 10th and 11th grade students who have completed the Level 1 Camp and are looking to further improve their scores. The advanced camp provides students with the opportunity to practice difficult versions of the concepts learned in Level 1 Camp, and to expand into more advanced techniques and problem types. Because the camp is focused on SAT prep, we also devote significant time to developing essay skills.
ACT LEVEL 1 AND LEVEL 2
Level 1 is designed for students entering 9th, 10th, and 11th grade. Students, through a systematic regimen of deliberate practice using our carefully constructed approaches, will develop skills required for the ACT. The camp will cover the fundamental problem types featured on the four sections of the ACT. All students will start at this level.
Level 2 is a more advanced camp for graduates of Level 1 looking to further challenge themselves. Like the SAT camp, the advanced camp provides students with the opportunity to practice difficult versions of the concepts learned in Level 1 Camp, and to expand into more advanced techniques and problem types.
