SAT

The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is the nation's most widely used college admission test, the SAT is taken by more than two million students every year and is accepted by virtually all colleges and universities. The SAT tests the reading, writing and math skills that are critical for success in college and beyond. The SAT also provides the opportunity for students to connect to scholarship opportunities, place out of certain college courses, and learn more about their academic strengths. 

Four-year college-bound students should take the SAT during the spring semester of their junior year and again during the fall semester of their senior year. Most colleges require students to take the SAT or ACT no later than the December test date of their senior year.

ACT


The American College Testing (ACT) is a nationwide test accepted by all 4-year colleges and universities in the United States. The ACT is not an aptitude or an IQ test. The test questions on the ACT are directly related to what a student has learned through their high school courses in English, mathematics, reading, and science. Every day a student attend’s class they are essentially preparing for the ACT. The harder a student work’s in school, the more prepared they will be for the test.

Four-year college-bound students should take the ACT during the spring of their junior year and again during the fall of their senior year. Most colleges require students to take the ACT or SAT no later than the December test date of their senior year.
