SENIORS: YOU MUST give staff (including counselors) 2 weeks to complete recommendations before they are due. DO NOT request something last minute or on weekends and expect it to get done on time. Watch your deadlines and be prepared. This includes requesting transcripts to be sent. RESPECT goes a long ways when asking for help.

ALL students:  Remember you can log in to Naviance (through the student portal) for your Career and College needs.  There is also a good scholarship search on this site.

College Tests:
Costs for the SAT Reasoning Test, SAT Subject Tests, and
ACT vary from year to year. Fees are listed on their websites.
1. PSAT/NMSQT The PSAT/NMSQT is usually administered in October. College bound sophomores and juniors are encouraged to take the test. The PSAT is a shorter version of the SAT Reasoning Test which is used by many colleges for admission purposes. Research shows that students who use the results from the PSAT to develop a study plan score better on the SAT. Results of the PSAT are used to select finalists for National Merit Scholarships.

2. SAT Reasoning Test Sometimes referred to as the "College Boards" since the test is produced by the College Entrance Examination Board. The SAT Reasoning Test is a 3-hour test measuring basic verbal and mathematical abilities and writing skills. It is one of the two most widely used national tests for college admissions. The test is available to juniors and seniors. (If students take it during the junior year, they generally register for one of the spring sessions.) Registration is done online at www.collegeboard.com.
3. The SAT Subject Tests. Formerly called the Achievement Tests, the SAT Subject Tests measure knowledge of a specific subject and are offered in most of the academic areas. Each test is one hour long and a student may take as many as three tests in a single session. Since these tests are administered on the same days as the SAT Reasoning Test, you cannot take both the SAT Reasoning Test and SAT Subject Tests at the same time.
Most selective colleges require their applicants to take two or three SAT Subject Tests in addition to the SAT Reasoning Test. Some colleges specify which tests are to be taken; others allow the student some choice. Consult the individual college's website to see which they require.
4. ACT (American College Test). The aptitude test is used for college admissions purposes. The test covers four areas--English, mathematics, social science, and natural sciences. To register for the ACT go to: www.actstudent.org.
5. AP (Advanced Placement Tests). All students enrolled in advanced placement courses have the opportunity to take the Advanced Placement tests in May. Most colleges waive or give credit for qualifying scores. Student must notify the teacher of the intent to take an AP test. Fees for the tests vary
