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.


Pearl River High School will be administering the PSAT on Saturday, October 17, 2020.  Interested sophomores and juniors must register between September 14 - September 30.  Payments must be made by either mailing a check for $35 to the PRHS Guidance Department or through MySchoolBucks.  Students are registered when payment is complete.  Please refer to the PSAT Parent Letter for details.
