College and Career


Most colleges require either the SAT or ACT for admission. Many colleges will take the better of the two scores if both tests are taken. During both the junior and senior meetings, the counselor will discuss an appropriate individualized testing plan.

The SAT is offered 7 times per year and measures evidence-based reading and writing, and mathematics skills. For more information, dates, registration, and practice materials, visit www.collegeboard.org.

The ACT is offered 6 times per year and measures English, mathematics, science, reading, and writing. For more information, dates, registration, and practice materials, visit www.actstudent.org.
