    Many colleges expect students to take a college-placement test, such as those provided by the College Board and ACT. It is recommended that every student take the ACT and SAT at least one time Junior year (Spring semester) and one time Senior year (Fall semester). Colleges may require students to take the test(s) more than this to gain admissions or scholarship awards. Click on the links below to view test dates, times, and fees. See below for information regarding fee waivers.

    Eligible students will receive two ACT and two SAT Waivers per lifetime. Waivers are issued during Junior and Senior year only. Please email Mr. Pittman for waivers.
