Do I Still Need to Take the ACT or SAT?

Many parents ask us if their children still need to take the ACT or SAT because some schools no longer require these tests for admission.  The answer is “yes” because a number of popular colleges continue to require the ACT or SAT for admission.

What If the Student is Not Applying to a School That Requires These Tests?

Most students take the ACT or SAT during their junior year of high school, before they have created a list of target colleges. This means that many students are still unsure of what their academic future holds. They have an idea of what they want, but that idea can, and often does, change. If they avoid taking their ACT or SAT during this time, and do happen to change their mind, it could alter which colleges they can apply to in the future.

Getting Ready for the ACTs and SATs

Once a student decides that taking the ACTs or SATs, or both, is best, he or she should get help to make the process easier. The best time (by far) to begin preparation is during the summer prior to junior year when you don’t have to compete with the demands of school and extracurricular activities. Do check out Lafayette Academy’s genuinely unique summer/fall or summer/spring test prep program. We pioneered a new way to prepare for the SAT and ACT, helping students achieve tremendous  success for many years.  We will  help yours, too. Call us and set up a consultation today!
