2016-2017 SAT/ACT Testing

Juniors are encouraged to begin taking their SAT and ACT test in the spring. Please note the following guidelines; 
  1. Tests can be taken more than once. However, it is recommended that they are taken no more than three times.
  2. Not sure what test your student should take? Either one will be accepted at colleges so, whichever format and structure works best for your student is what to choose. Practice tests are a great way to evaluate this. The dates that each test are offered may also be the determining factor for your family.
  3. Practice is important! Mrs. Duerre has practice resources and booklets in her office. There are also multiple resources available online.
More information about preparing for these tests can be found here.
