Counselor's Corner: Which tests do high school students need to take?

Which tests do high school students need to take?

9th grade: Freshmen will take the 9th grade PSAT.

10th grade: Sophomores will take the 10th grade PSAT. They can also take the ACCUPLACER if they plan to dual enroll as juniors.

11th grade: Students can take the PSAT which is a practice for the SAT and attached to the National Merit Scholarship.

The M-STEP is required for all juniors. This includes the SAT, Work Keys and M-STEP. Other optional tests include ACT, ASVAB (for both career planning and military entrance) and the ACCUPLACER for dual enrollment. Please see Mrs. Vidak with any questions regarding these tests.

12th grade: seniors may want to consider re-testing SAT for college entrance purposes or scholarships. The higher the score, the more money may be attached to college scholarships.
