College Entrance Exams

Scores on college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT are one of the important factors colleges use in determining admissions. The test scores may even be more important to homeschoolers as colleges see these test scores as an objective standard to compare students from various school backgrounds.  Keep these things in mind as you register your student to take these tests: 

  • Tests are given throughout the year at numerous test centers including public and private schools and also community colleges.
  • Preparing for the test is essential.  Being comfortable with the test format, being aware of strategies for test taking, and reviewing material on practice tests goes a long way towards achieving high test scores.
  • Colleges typically take the best test scores from all the tests taken and add them together to get the composite score, so have your children take the test several times until he reaches the highest score he is capable of achieving.
  • Check out the testing section of our website for valuable information on registering for the tests, helpful test preparation resources, and links to practice tests. For more information on these tests, visit our website.
