The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is required by most colleges for admission. Seniors who have not taken the test and plan to attend college next fall should take this test at the earliest possible date. Register for the REASONING exam, not the Subject tests.
Students who have already taken the SAT and feel they could improve their score may retake the exam. Applicants may send FOUR scores to colleges or universities for FREE. Some athletes may send scores to the NCAA.
The American College Testing program (ACT) is similar to the SAT, but includes testing sections in science and social studies. The ACT is required by some schools for admission. Testing results include recommendations for careers as well as a comparison of six colleges the student pre-selects.
