Pencil and Exam
Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, most colleges/universities are test optional, however it is important to check with colleges for current ACT/SAT requirements. CSU’s and UC’s have officially waived these as a requirement; students should check with private and out of state universities for their testing requirements and policies.


The PSAT/NMSQT includes a Reading Test, Writing and Language Test, and a Math Test. Test booklets and scored answer documents will be returned to students following the release of scores. Student scores from the PSAT/NMSQT will be available online to students through their College Board account. 


Four-year college bound students may consider taking the SAT during the spring of their junior year and again during the fall of their senior year. Although no longer required by CSUs and UCs, other colleges may still encourage students to take the SAT (students are advised to check college campuses websites for testing policies).

Digital SAT practice is free and available to all students through the Bluebook™ testing app. Students can take a full-length digital practice test, view their results, and get linked to additional instructional materials, resources, and lessons on Official Digital SAT Prep on Khan Academy®.


    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.
    FREE ACT test prep is available on the ACT website. CLICK HERE to begin preparing. 

    Advanced Placement (AP)

    AP exams are taken each year during the month of May. Exams are scored on a 5 point scale and most colleges and universities award college credit for scores of 3, 4, or 5. The amount and type of credit varies by institution. Students who are in need of special accommodations must notify their teacher and AP Coordinator upon enrollment in the course, but no later than February 1.
