Event Details

This is our flagship ACT prep program. It is designed to prepare students for the June ACT. This class meets every Monday night from 6:30 - 8:30 pm from 3/19/18 until 6/4/18. 

About Outlier's Advantage:

What we are:

We are a human development organization.

Primary objective:

Our goal is to be a world-class life success and leadership program for students.

The problem we solve:

Schools are not designed to TRAIN students how to be successful.

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, we are more interested in the way the student must grow to achieve his or her goal.

About the Outlier’s Advantage 13-week ACT prep program:

                This program is designed for students who want to score a 28 or above on the ACT. It is a challenging, 13-week program designed 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 Knox County to push together towards a common goal. It is amazing what can be accomplished when you have a group of highly motivated students with specific goals who are all working together to help each other achieve those goals.

                In our program, students will learn advanced (yet simple) 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 part of learning, time management, memorization, teaching yourself 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 designed for maximum engagement. Each class is broken up into two teams. Each team has a team leader who was a successful student from a past class. This is the team captain, and he or she is 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 captains are also engaged on a one-on-one level. Every student texts in his or her goals every single day to the team captain. The team captain is responsible for looking over these goals, giving custom advice, motivating, and focusing almost every single day of the three months of the program. 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. As of this year, we have had different students get a 16-point increase on the English (from a 17-33), a 16-point increase on the Reading (from a 17 – 33), a 16-point increase on the Science (15-31), and a 9-point increase on the Math (from an 18-27). We also had 2 students get an 8-point composite increase (from a 22-30 and a 25-33) and one student get a 12-point composite increase (from a 21-33). 82% of students have increased by 3 composite points or more. Almost 40% of students have increased their English by at least 8 points. Just shy of 40% of students have increased their reading by at least 5 points. More than 40% of students increased their science and math by at least 4 points, and although less than 15% of students start with a 28 or above, more than half of all of our students this year have ended with a 28 or above.
