This way, students get most of the material from the class but get to focus in on their problem areas with one-on-one coaching.

Event Details

Class Description 

This program is designed for students who are focused on the July ACT. It meets every Sunday night from 6:30-8:30 from April 14 until June 2. Then it switches to Monday nights from June 10 until July 1.   

About Outlier's Advantage: 

Who we are: 

We are a human development organization. 

Primary objective: 

To be a world-class life success and leadership program for students. 

The problem we solve: 

Students are rarely trained how to be successful in school and life. 

How we currently solve this problem: 

We train students in skills and success principles to be successful in college and beyond. 

We use the ACT as our main means to teach and practice these skills and principles. 

Though higher ACT scores are a great immediate result, it is how students must grow to get these scores that we are most interested. 


About the 13-week ACT Prep Academy 

This program is designed for students who want to score a 28 or above on the ACT. It is a challenging, 13-week program intended for students who want to do what it takes to win on this test and in life. We bring together the best of the best from the greater Knoxville area to push together towards a common goal. It is amazing what can be accomplished when a group of highly motivated students with specific goals all work together to achieve their goals. 

                In our program, students learn advanced techniques for goal setting, top-performance mental game, performing under pressure, focusing on mastery before moving to the next step, overcoming self-limiting beliefs, embracing failure and embarrassment as a part of learning, time management, memorization, teaching themselves anything, thinking bigger, self-talk, and planning for success. We also rebuild grammar and math foundations, improve reading speed and comprehension, and simplify reasoning skills. 

                The program is structured for maximum engagement. Each class is broken up into two teams. Each team has a team leader, and they are there to help lead the team to victory over the other team in the class each week. The way the team wins is by having the most students on that team go above and beyond on their personal goals for that week. This way, everyone is encouraged to do his or her part during weekly prep because it affects more than just themselves. The team leaders are also engaged on a one-on-one level. Every student texts in his or her goals every single day to the team leader. The team leader is responsible for looking over these goals, giving custom advice, motivating students, and helping students stay focused throughout the course of the class. Our president and founder, Bobby Nicholson, is the instructor/lead coach for all of our classes. 

                The program only works if the students do, but the results speak for themselves. In 2017, 86% of students scored at least a 3-point composite increase, 66% of students scored at least a 4-point composite increase, 43% scored at least a 5-point composite increase, and 31% scored at least a 6-point composite increase. We also had a class in 2017 where half of the class got at least a 6-point composite increase, and we had another class in 2017 where 25% of the class got at least an 8-point composite increase. Our biggest increase in 2017 was a 12-point composite increase from a 21 to a 33. These are all based on official ACT scores, as we require all students to have already taken the ACT before they start our program.  


Things to know before signing up:  

1.     This program is designed for students with a starting ACT score between a 20-32. If your student is starting with a 19 or below or a 33 or above, it would probably be best that they choose one of our one-on-one options. 

2.    We require that all students take the ACT before they start our program. We need to have these results at least one week before the start of the class. If you learn about our program too late to take an official ACT test before the start of thprogram, we can use the results from one of our Free Mock ACTs. You can sign up for these on our website. If the Mock ACT does not work, we will need you to self-administer a practice test. Please contact our office so that we can email you one of these. 

3.    This program requires a lot of homework time. Most students will do 1.5 to 2 hours per day of ACT prep throughout the three months of the program with one day off each week. If it is not realistic for your student to do this, we recommend doing the program at a different time or doing a one-on-one option where students can self-pace. 

4.    Please do not make your student do our program if they do not want to do it. We have students in every class where their parents are forcing them to do it, and it almost never ends up well. It is very easy to do tons of hours of work and not increase hardly at all because you are just going through the motions. These students often also end up having a bad experience.  They have to want this for themselves for this to work. For students who really want to beat the ACT, a lot of them actually end up loving the program. It is incredible to be surrounded by motivated students with common goals all pushing each other to reach those goals.
