When applying to a college, the Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SAT) and American College Tests (ACT) are huge factors in determining college acceptance.
Last month, a few juniors from Sacred Hearts Academy took the SAT, along with other juniors from around the country.
To prepare for the test, students may take SAT prep classes or hire a private one-on-one tutor.
“The SAT was one of the hardest tests that I took in my life,” junior Angelyne Loiselle said. “I suggest studying at least a month before your test date and taking a prep class.”
The Academy is offering SAT prep classes to its students. Solutions Test Prep & Tutoring provides an SAT class, which goes from Feb. 22 to March 10.
The tutoring service is also offering a combo class for both SAT and ACT preparation. The class starts on Feb. 22 and extends to April 5.
“Any opportunity for a student to get prepared for the SAT or ACT is good,” Academy College Counselor Randy Fong said. “Solutions Test Prep & Tutoring has a good track record in improving students’ scores. They help by providing textbooks and handouts that inform the students on the best ways to take the tests.”
