Standardized Testing

* Please note that due to the COVID 19 situation... test dates and testing requirements are subject to change. Check the testing website and the college website for up to date information.  The Fair Test website has a list of test optional/test flexible colleges that you can view.  Please note that it changes daily in our current situation. As always, it is best to check with each college directly for their requirements. 

Admission to college is based primarily on classroom performance in high school.  The grades you earn in academic courses generally provide sufficient information for colleges to make decisions.  The second piece of critical information is a college entrance exam.  All juniors will take the SAT in the spring, which will allow for possible retakes in the summer or fall.  The ACT is a different admissions exam, and most colleges accept both.  Most admissions decisions will be delayed until the college receives these test results.  We strongly recommend that you send all test scores to colleges of interest WHEN REGISTERING to avoid further delays and fees.  Remember, students who qualify for free/reduced lunch can also qualify for test waivers!  Please see your counselor. 

Our high school code for both tests is 232-882
