SAT/ACT Boot Camps
Bootcamp Details & Registration
August 2022 – We understand that the college admissions process may be very confusing for many families. For many years we have offered our SAT/ACT Boot Camps as a fundraiser in partnership with DB Academics to provide Dana Hills High School students with “last minute” test preparation (review, pacing, testing strategies, etc.) before taking the PSAT, SAT or ACT.
Only current juniors or seniors should consider doing our Boot Camps.
NOTE: Our Boot Camps are not the same as the online mock SAT/ACT being offered by Futureology. The mock exams are a chance to take the full-length exam under "mock" conditions so you can see how you might score without the score going on your record.
STATUS OF TEST OPTIONAL / TEST BLIND ADMISSIONS:
The Cal State system and the UC system for the Class of 2023 are “test blind” (they will not consider test scores for admissions or scholarship).
Private and out-of-state schools across the country are announcing their own policies regarding testing requirements for admissions and many of them have decided to be "test optional" (SAT or ACT will be considered if submitted, but you cannot be penalized for not submitting scores).
Follow FairTest.org for the latest updates on test optional schools: http://fairtest.org/university/optional
Why should your student consider taking the SAT or ACT if many schools are not requiring them?
While SAT or ACT scores may not be used for making admissions decisions, they still may be used for the evaluation for:
Scholarships (merit awards)
Direct entry programs like nursing
College course placement
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
