COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMS
The ACT® test is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students' academic readiness for college.
- The ACT motivates students to perform to their best ability and often results in increased college enrollment, especially for underrepresented students.
- Test scores reflect what students have learned throughout high school and provide colleges and universities with excellent information for recruiting, advising, placement, and retention.
- To support college and career planning, the ACT career exploration component helps students identify personally relevant career options.
The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions.
