Testimonials

“During my tenure as principal at Canton High School, I have faced many challenges, and one of the greatest was advancing the performance of my students on the ACT,” said Dr. Pamela Self, principal of Canton High School. “Originally, my goal for the students participating in the ACT initiative at the school would be to score a minimum of 17 on ACTsubtests. By making a 17 on the ACT, that score could replace a graduation-required state test in Algebra I, English II, Biology and/or U.S. History. This initiative worked and increased our graduation rate. More are also scoring as college- and career-ready.”

Pamela Self, Ed Phd.

“My school provided a program that really helped my fellow classmates and my ACT scores to grow.​The Jumpstart program broke down each part of the ACT test to us and showed how we could manage our time better. The program​gave us help on how to answer the questions quickly and effectively. I’m really glad my principal, Dr. Self, made it possible to have it implemented into our studies.” Yasmine had taken the ACT twice before the Jumpstart Program. She improved 4 composite points over her best prior score that included an 8-point reading score improvement, a 5-point math improvement, and a 3-point reading improvement.

Yasmine Jeffrey, CHS junior student

“I appreciated the program the school provided to us. Jumpstart provided a breakdown of each part of the ACT. The teachers helped us to understand questions we didn’t understand for each part of the ACT. I really appreciated their assistance. We also received tips on how to manage our time better when you take the test. All of this really helped me.” Marterrion improved 3 composite points over his first ACT attempt that included a 9-point improvement over his prior Science score.

Marterrion Fulton, CHS junior student

“I truly enjoyed implementing Jumpstart into our ACT Prep Boot camp for the juniors. The Jumpstart presenters gave a lot of helpful tips and taught test-taking strategies and broke down the math content. The fill-in-the-blank workbooks and step-by-step instruction videos worked hand in hand as the students attentively watched the videos to complete the review sections of the workbook. I highly recommend the Jumpstart Test Prep review for the ACT.”

Testimonials

Jumpstart Test Prep is a phenomenal product that will increase students scores when used correctly. We have been fortunate to pilot with Jumpstart Test Prep for several years and feel it has been pivotal in helping our students improve. We have even used some of the individual subjects to assist our students in state tested areas. I have no doubt this product has helped some of our students be eligible for graduation and assisted many others in obtaining better scholarship offers from the college or university they wish to attend.  

The customer service and reliability of the product has been second to none. Any time we had a question or concern it was handled quickly and correctly the first time. Jumpstart Test Prep goes above and beyond to be of assistance in the implementation and staff and student buy in.

Testimonials

 “Our students did very well with the JumpstartTest Prep program, and I feel our plan to include the Jumpstart review within the MSA curriculum with selected teachers was a great addition to what we are doing in the classroom. Our teachers worked hard to deliver the program as prescribed by Jumpstart co-founder and former MSA "teacher-of-the-year", Dot McClendon. The program was used as a review of content and practice within the few weeks before our juniors re-tested on the ACT in February.  All juniors at MSA received subject area preparation through Jumpstart within their classes or after school through an individualized schedule around a rigorous school day. We are proud of the efforts of our students and teachers to prepare for this important test. These scores will be life-changing for college acceptance and scholarship offers. Jumpstart Test Prep is an exceptional addition to our programming and gets results."

Testimonials

When I saw the set up of the program and the results of the schools that participated; I knew that this program would work for Okolona School District. I love the way the videos are short and to the point, while including all prerequisite information needed by students to be able to tackle the more comprehensive ACT questions. I observed students who were afraid of Reading and English blossom into competent and confident test takers. I would definitely recommend this for other school districts who need ACT resources.
