Standardized Testing and Test Prep

  • There are nearly 30,000 high schools in the United States with a wide range of courses and grading standards. College entrance exams like the SAT I, SAT II and the ACT help colleges determine who is ready for the academic rigors of college.

    These standardized tests are designed to compare the millions of students applying for acceptance into colleges and are very important in the college selection process. Please keep in mind that these scores are only one of the determining factors toward acceptance.

    It is important to find out the college entrance exams required by the colleges you intend to apply for. This information can be found on the college's website.

    • On the SAT, ACT and PSAT pages, you will find important information regarding each test, as well as links to College Board and ACT.
    • The testing Timeline page offers an explanation of who should take the test and when.
    • On the Test Prep page, you will find a number of links that will help you prepare for the test.

    It is essential that you understand the differences between the SAT and ACT, and how those differences relate to your strengths.
