Standardized Tests

Most four-year colleges require that students submit SAT or ACT scores. Here's how each of these tests is structured: The SAT has three major sections: math, reading and writing (which includes a written essay). The ACT has four major sections: English, math, reading and science (and an optional essay section).


The following SAT/ACT prep programs are available locally.  We encourage you to research them to see what best fits your needs.
