SAT & ACT

For registration purposes for either test, you’ll need the CEEB code for our school — it is 341-764.

Most colleges accept either ACT or SAT scores as their college entrance exam requirement. High school students often ask which test is better, but the answer is completely dependent upon the student. Luckily, both the ACT and SAT websites offer free complete practice tests and sample test questions that you can try for yourself so you can decide which test showcases your strengths to their max. Take time to prepare for whichever test you decide to take!

Remember – always check with the college/university to which you are applying to make sure they accept the test of your choice!
