For those of you who are going into your spring semester of junior year or are already seniors in high school, the SAT and ACT tests are probably top-of-mind! It is recommended for juniors entering into their spring semester of high school to take the SAT or ACT test, especially if you’re applying early. Students are able to take the SAT or ACT multiple times, so it is encouraged to take either test spring semester of junior year so you have enough time to take it again if needed. If you are already a senior in high school you should definitely be taking the SAT or ACT during the fall since many college applications have deadlines! Remember to stay on top of deadlines as they can approach quickly. Below are some dates and registration deadlines to take note of:
