The SAT is a measure of the critical thinking skills needed for academic success in college. The SAT assesses analytical and problem-solving skills learned in school that are needed in college. Each section of the SAT is scored on a scale of 200—800, plus two writing sub-scores for multiple-choice and the essay. The tests include: Evidenced-Based Reading and Writing, Math, and an essay. For more information visit www.collegeboard.com.

ACT - American College Test

The ACT is a widely used college entrance exam. It assesses high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.  The score range is 1-36.The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. An optional 5th test, Writing, measures skill in planning and writing a short essay. (It cannot be taken separately.) The Writing test may be required for admission, depending on the university. Therefore, we recommend that your student takes an ACT with the Writing section at least once. For more information visit actstudent.org.
