SAT / ACT Information

Students StudyingThis page is designed to provide helpful information on testing, practice and help for the SAT and ACT, college financial aid, and more. We strongly encourage students to take both the Sat and the ACT. Some students will naturally score higher on one than on the other. It is also important to take each test more than once. Students should take one of these test for the first time toward the end of their junior year and then a couple of times more during their senior year.

Other pages, located under the Academic tab, can provide you with help on deciding which college is right for you – public or private, Christian or state school, nearby or far away, big school or small, liberal arts or specialized. With so many questions about life after high school, it is never too soon to get started in the process of planning for your education beyond ECS!
