College Entrance Testing
Students planning to attend a 4-year college or university right after high school, as opposed to entering a transfer program at a technical college, should plan to take the SAT or ACT.
If you are beginning your post-secondary education at a 2-year technical college you will take the ASVAB or COMPASS test. For more information on scheduling those tests contact your college.
If you are still confused about which test you should take, see your counselor before registering.

Why should you take the PSAT or PLAN?
These assessments can gauge early academic preparation in math and reading as well as reasoning and critical thinking. We will utilize performance data to identify and inform students about their academic proficiency and college readiness. When taking the PSAT and PLAN take them seriously so you will have an accurate assessment tool.
