    ACT and SAT Information


    ACT and SAT are college entrance tests that students should begin taking during their junior year (and senior year, too). It has been recommended for some students to take each of these tests twice; as this may improve upon their results. Students on free or reduced lunch may be eligible for a "test waiver," which will allow for a discount or even a free test (for first attempts only). Please come to the Guidance Department for more information on the ACT or SAT.
