Standardized Testing

The testing landscape is always shifting. Colleges refine, and even seismically shift, their testing policies from year-to-year. Most colleges require a host of very specific tests, some colleges are test optional, and some are test blind. Because each school and program is different, it is best to consult individual college websites when researching requirements.

The College Counseling office helps students research requirements, identify an appropriate testing plan, and understand how those scores will shape the college process. We are here to help you navigate every part of this process.The mechanics of standardized testing is managed by the PAS Academic Office. Mrs. Kaye Caplin, the Registrar, and the Director of Testing, facilitate student sign-ups and administer all tests affiliated with the College Board (SAT, Subject Tests, APs). The academic office also helps organize rides to test sites off campus for the ACT and the TOEFL.

The student is responsible for signing himself/herself up for each test and for sending test scores to colleges through collegeboard.org and/or http://www.actstudent.org.
