SAT and ACT Dates and Deadlines

Guidance counselors prefer that you have completed Algebra I and Geometry before you take the tests. You may need to take both tests a couple of times; at least once in the spring of your junior year and once at the beginning of your senior year. Some institutions require the SAT II subject tests. To register for either of these tests pick up a registration packet from your Guidance Counselor or your Project Discovery Counselor. You must upload a headshot of yourself when you register.  To register online, go to (SAT) or (ACT). Ask your Project Discovery Counselor if you qualify for a fee waiver.
