College Testing


Students need to take either the SAT or ACT for college acceptance. The Guidance Department, as well as taking the Career & College Readiness class, can help students with the registering process. Students may take both the ACT and SAT a total of two times each during their junior and senior years in high school for free by obtaining waiver forms from their counselor.
