*ACT and SAT- It is never too early to start thinking about the SAT and ACT test. We encourage all Juniors to take either the ACT or SAT at least once during their Junior year. Most colleges require at least one of these test scores to be submitted with an application. It is important to find out what scores are required for the colleges you will be applying to during their senior year to determine if you will need to retest. Students should also be aware that a limited number of fee waivers are available to Juniors and Seniors who qualify through free or reduced lunch. Registration for both the ACT and SAT can be completed online by clicking on the link listed above. If students need help registering, please stop by the counselor’s office. She will be happy to help you register or give you more information. The dates for both exams are listed above. If you are unsure about which exam is best for you, please have them come by the counselor’s office.
