College Testing

SATs will be here before you know it and we wanted to make sure all Juniors and Seniors are aware of the process, as well as the deadlines, for registering for standardized test.

To register, go to:www.collegeboard.org. You will need a credit card to process your registration. If you have a financial hardship and/or receive free or reduced price lunch please see your school counselor, as you may qualify for a fee waiver.

The upcoming dates are:

October 5 (registration deadline: September 6)

November 2 (registration deadline: October 3)

December 7 (registration deadline: November 8)

January 25 (registration deadline: December 27)

March 8 (registration deadline: February 7, 2014)

May 3 (registration deadline: April 4)

June 7 (registration deadline: May 9).

If you plan to take SAT Subject tests (only required for the most competitive colleges), you should consider taking the SATs in May and the subject tests in June. Some schools require specific subject tests. Please visit the websites of the schools you are interested in to see what they require.

How to Prepare for the SAT?

Many students/parents have asked how to best prepare for the SAT. There are many options. First, review your PSAT scores to see where your areas of strengths/weakness lie.

Visit www.collegeboard.org/quickstart login with your access code. This provides you with a customized SAT prep "plan". Also, you can sign up for the "question of the day" to be emailed to your account.

We suggest that you do practice problems (timed) as well. You can access practice books in the college & career center at WHS, or you can purchase a prep book online or in a book store.

Those of you who are looking for SAT classes, there is one offered at WHS through a company named Lentz & Lentz, a prep program held through Youth Services and a new online option: www.tutapoint.com/edgepreplive/LEARN. These programs either run in the evening or are self-scheduled to minimize conflicts with sports/extra-curriculars.

If you would like more information or have any questions about any of the aforementioned material please contact your school counselor.
