ACT & SAT Test Dates 2023-2024


    High school juniors and seniors planning to attend college after graduation will need to take the ACT and/or the SAT as a part of their application process. Students are strongly encouraged to begin taking these tests by the spring of the junior year. This will allow students enough time to take tests over again before college applications are due in the fall of the senior year. Students may take the tests multiple times in the event that they need/want to improve their scores. Parents/students should explore admissions requirements for any colleges of interest to determine if a specific test is needed to complete the respective application.

    Please refer to the websites noted below for registration information as well as valuable test preparation materials.

    Students should contact their School Counselor to obtain a fee waiver if they qualify

    Students should contact their School Counselor for information about additional test preparation material

    BUSINESS- ESSAY:We compared both ACT and SAT and defined that the ACT is for students good at thinking fast and working under pressure, while the SAT is better for those who prefer more moderately-paced thinking. And we also included study tips for each section of these tests with the preparation resources (free and paid).  https://business-essay.com/blog/sat-and-act-whats-the-difference-how-to-prepare-for-both-exams-guide-2022/.
