About AP

AP classes offer a challenging and stimulating educational experience for college bound students. When compared to other high school courses, AP classes often take more time, require more work, and give greater opportunity for individual growth and accomplishment. In May, AP exams are taken and scored on a 5 point scale. Most major colleges and universities recognize scores of 3, 4, or 5 for college credit. The amount of credit varies by institution. Students who are in need of special accommodations, must notify their teacher and the AP Coordinator upon enrollment in the course.

For more information from the College Board please see this article Why Take AP?

SAT v ACT

As School Counselors, we are are often asked, "Which test is best for me?" Click the icon to the left to watch a quick video that addresses this important question.






PSAT Test

 

The PSAT is practice tests for the SAT.  We encourage 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students to take practice tests in preparation for the SAT.  This test provides an excellent opportunity to participate in a National testing program and can be an effective diagnostic tool. The test includes the following areas:  Reading Test, Writing and Language Test, and a Math Test. There is no passing score for this test.

The PSAT will not be offered this school year. To help students keep their college readiness skills sharp, College Board and Khan Academy will continue to provide free resources online, including full-length practice tests and personalized learning tools.

SAT

As the nation's most widely used college admission test, the SAT is taken by more than two million students every year and is accepted by virtually all colleges and universities. The SAT tests the reading, writing and math skills that are critical for success in college and beyond. The SAT also provides the opportunity for you to connect to scholarship opportunities, place out of certain college courses,and learn more about your academic strengths.

Four year college-bound students should take the SAT during the spring of their junior year and again during the fall of their senior year. Most colleges require students to take the SAT no later than the December test date.

Pre ACT

The Pre-ACT will not be offered this year.  
 
This 10th grade assessment predicts student performance on the ACT test and offers career-interest information to help students and parents make informed decisions and plan for their future.
