NEW for 2020-21 School Year!!

For this school year, ALL Seniors will be able to take the SAT on September 23rd, Juniors on April 13th and Freshman will take the PSAT on October 14th (same day as Sophomores are scheduled).
The PSAT/NMSQT is available for JUNIORS to take in order to pre-qualify for the National Merit Scholarship as well as other academic recognition programs. The cost is $17 to take it as a Junior and students MUST signup in Student Services to be added to the test roster. Students that qualify for fee waivers for SAT/ACT may also be eligible for a waiver for the PSAT/NMSQT.

How do I qualify for a Fee Waiver to take the ACT and SAT? Students who are currently enrolled in the Reduced/Free Lunch Program may receive waivers to take the SAT and ACT for free. Additional benefits apply for each test. See waiver for complete details. EVERY student is encouraged to apply for lunch benefits now! www.MyScholApps.com
Verification of status required using the “Release of Eligibility” District Form – submit to Student Services/Resource Room.
A Note about SAT & ACT Registrations: at the time you register (and up to the date specified in your registration) you will have the ability to have your test score sent to (4-6) colleges of your choice for FREE. Do NOT miss this opportunity. If you elect to have scores sent to a college(s) after the fact, there is a cost involved – PER SCORE, and PER SCHOOL. The cost is $12+, and that will add up. (If you are registering with a fee waiver, there are slight differences, but you still need to select schools). FREE IS GOOD!
LATE FEE of $30 applies for registration after the deadline up to the late deadline, as shown below, for both SAT & ACT. There is also a $30 change fee that applies if you register for a test, but miss the test date and try to register for a new date.

- Mainland Test Center Code: 197090

- Provides a world class, comprehensive career exploration and planning experience based on current career development theory and practice

- 76% of the students who participated did so because of their interest in making appropriate post- high school career and educational plans.
- 31% of the students who participated did so because of their interest in military service.
