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. The test dates for the 2019-20 ACT and SAT tests are listed on the following link: SAT and SAT Dates for 2019-20**DHS Counseling Department is on Twitter**Want to feel more connected to DHS?
