• SAT & ACT - Planning

    The SAT and ACT are offered several times a year.  Most students take these exams for the first time during the spring of their junior year.  At least half of all students take the SAT twice — in the spring of their junior year and in the fall of their senior year.  Most students also improve their score the second time around.

    For the SAT Subject Tests™, most students take them toward the end of their junior year or at the beginning of their senior year. In general, students should take tests such as World History, Biology E/M, Chemistry or Physics as soon as possible after completing the course in the subject. Students tend to do better on other tests like languages after at least two years of study.
