    SAT and ACT Testing Dates
    If you plan to apply to a four year college next year, we recommend that you take either the SAT or ACT college entrance exam at least once in the Spring. The main difference between the exams is that the ACT exam has Science on it, the SAT exam does not. Listed below are the SAT/ACT exam dates and registration deadlines. You can see samples of the exams on their websites along with practice exams. Our Schools CEEB High School Code is 331360.
    If you are applying only to community college, SAT/ACT exams are not required.
