The Kickoff: Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What if my student has already started Test Preparation with Cram Crew? Would The Kickoff be for them?

A: Probably not. This program is designed to expedite the first three to four weeks of our Test Preparation curriculum and establish a game plan. If a student has already started with Test Preparation, The Kickoff will more than likely be a repeat of content, strategy, and game planning that they have covered with their consultants.

Q: Is The Kickoff just for the ACT or will it help prepare for the SAT as well?

A: For March 12 – 16, The Kickoff will only focus on the ACT, but we are hoping to offer both the ACT and SAT “Kickoffs” in the future.

Q: What kind of materials will you be providing?

A: Each student will receive a binder of proprietary materials created specifically for this program and an official, retired ACT Exam for supplemental practice.

Q: Does my student have to sign up for a Test Preparation package after The Kickoff?

A: While we think our Test Preparation packages would be a great addition to The Kickoff, it is not necessary. We will formulate a game plan for whatever your student’s preparation future will be–with us or solo!

Q: What does my student need to bring?

A: The usual–pencils, erasers, calculator, and a notebook (though material will be provided, we know there are avid note-takers out there!). Snacks and a drink are welcome! 

Q: What time will the program be?

A: Monday through Thursday from noon to 4 p.m. Friday times will vary from student-to-student as they set up individual sessions. 

Q: Does my student need to do anything before the program?

A: Yes! We need each student to take a preliminary Mock Exam on either March 3 or March 10 to create the individualized score report and assessment, and to identify the student’s strengths and weaknesses. Pleas call the office at 713-464-2726 to schedule the mock exam.

Q: What if my student can’t make a certain day of The Kickoff? Can they still attend? Is there a discount?

A: Definitely! Just let us know when the scheduling conflicts are. We understand that schedules are busy, but we will not be able to offer any makeup days or discounts for partial attendance of this program. 

Q: When is the cutoff to sign up?

A: Monday, March 2 is our last day to register for this program. We are only offering eight seats at this time, so we’re expecting spots to fill up fast!
