College Entrance Tests

Accomodations on the ACT/SAT may be available for qualified students.  See www.act.org and www.collegeboards.com.

Students should take the ACT during their junior year (either spring or summer) of high school. Seniors who may have put this off can still take it during their senior year.  This is important as many scholarships require a score before you can even apply for the funding. In addition, their are schools that give our funding for good scores on the ACT or SAT.  For example, the minimum ACT score required to apply for the Alworth is 26.
