PSAT 

Students can take the PSAT during ninth, tenth and/or eleventh grades. The new PSAT/NMSQT includes a Reading Test, a Writing and Language Test, and a Math Test. All Clovis Unified tenth grade students take the test free of charge, but there is a small fee of $15 for all others students. To register, sign-up in the Counseling Center in the fall. In December/January, test booklets and scored answer documents will be returned to students and counselors will review and interpret results during a group guidance lesson.



SAT 

As the nation's most widely used college admission test, the SAT is taken by more than two million students every year and is accepted by virtually all colleges and universities. The SAT tests the reading, writing and math skills that are critical for success in college and beyond. The SAT also provides the opportunity for you to connect to scholarship opportunities, place out of certain college courses,and learn more about your academic strengths. 

Four year college-bound students should take the SAT during the spring of their junior year and again during the fall of their senior year. Most colleges require students to take the SAT no later than the December test date.

New! Official SAT test practice is available through Khan Academy. Practice anytime, anywhere, at no cost.

ACT 

The ACT is accepted by all 4-year colleges and universities in the United States. The ACT is not an aptitude or an IQ test. The test questions on the ACT are directly related to what you have learned in your high school courses in English, mathematics, reading, and science. Every day you attend class you are preparing for the ACT. The harder you work in school, the more prepared you will be for the test. 

Four year college-bound students should take the ACT during the spring of their junior year and again during the fall of their senior year. Most colleges require students to take the ACT or SAT no later than the December test date.
