Students, if you are considering attending a four year university directly out of high school, high test scores on the SAT and/or ACT can help win you admission into highly competitive schools, and/or academic scholarships in state universities. If you are a strong athlete who is interested in athletic scholarships, many schools who may be “looking at you” will also be looking at your SAT and ACT test scores, so start preparing early.
Best time to test:
-Take the PSAT or ACT Prep as early as your sophomor year and then again in your junior year.
-Take the SAT and/or ACT in the Spring of your junior year, ideally, or in the second semester of Algebra II
- It is recommended to keep practicing and to test again in the summer of your junior year and in the fall of your senior year at least, though you may test earlier. Note that you may only qualify for a fee waiver in your junior or senior year
