Testing

If you have not ever taken the ACT or SAT, or took it and want to try to score higher, NOW is the time to do it!! The colleges/universities you apply for will want these scores as part of your transcript and they are required for entrance! Research shows that most students who re-take one of these tests generally score several points higher than the previous test, so if you want to increase your score, sign up.

Our high school code is 447630.  You will need this number to register.
