JUNIORS! TAKING THE SAT / ACT TEST?

JUNIORS! . . . If you plan to go to a 4-year college after you graduate you must take a college entrance exam, either the SAT or the ACT.

(If you will attend a community college there is no need to take these exams.)

Which one should you take? We suggest you TAKE BOTH the SAT and the ACT. Colleges and Universities accept both; they will use scores from whichever test you score highest on when reviewing your application. You won't know which exam you will perform the best on until you take both.

 When should you take these exams? We recommend you take an SAT and ACT late in your Junior Year. Once you receive your scores you can compare them to the average test scores of admitted students at the colleges you are interested In. (Please note that test scores are only one factor used in determining admission.) If you'd like to improve your test scores spend time during the summer studying test prep materials, taking practice tests, and/or taking a test prep course. The SAT and ACT will be offered multiple times in Fall 2017.
