Pre-College Testing

Pre-college tests like the college entrance exams (ACT or SAT) can help you get into college, earn scholarships and get a better sense of your academic strengths.

What are Pre-College Tests and Why Take Them?

There are various tests that may need to be taken depending on the college and/or career path you choose. Scores from these tests can support your admission into a college, place you in courses that match your skills and make you eligible for scholarship opportunities. A great place to start is by taking the ACT because many scholarships require it! Generally, options for pre-college testing start in 10th grade.
