Junior Information

SAT/ACT Testing

It is recommended that college-bound juniors take the SAT and/or ACT in the spring of the junior year.  Please see details below.  Students who receive free or reduced lunch should see their counselor for information about available fee waivers.


*May 3 late registration deadline is April 18. (Additional fees apply)

*June 7 SAT registration deadline is May 9.
