AC students participated in “College Admission Testing Day” on Wednesday, October 13th.
College admission tests (ACT and SAT) can be a helpful addition to a student’s college application, and the AC College Counseling Program provides opportunities for students to achieve their best scores. Students in 10th and 11th grade took the PreACT and PSAT/NMSQT, respectively, and were encouraged to use their score reports and test experiences to inform future test preparation and planning.
Students in 12th grade voted on which test (SAT or ACT) they wanted offered during the school day, creating the opportunity for an accessible test administration. Upper School Math Teacher, Brent Neeley, facilitated calculator workshops with test-takers to sharpen their “calculator agility” for the math sections on the tests. Through AC’s partnership with Chariot Learning, AC students have access to on-site test preparation, and all AC students can participate in free on-site practice SAT and ACT tests.
As students navigate the test-optional admissions landscape, AC’s Director of College Counseling continues to provide guidance on test submission so that students can best position their applications.
