We advise all juniors to take the ACT with Writing Assessment in April or June and the SAT Reasoning Test in May or June. Juniors considering colleges which require SAT Subject Tests should register for the June test date. Please be advised that although SAT Subject Tests are no longer required for the University of California, students may submit Subject Test results to demonstrate proficiency in specific areas. Other selective colleges may recommend or require Subject Tests.
Preparing for the exams is a critical component of the process. We suggest students use Method Test Prep (MTP) to prepare for the ACT and SAT. Students can access MTP through the student Quick Links on CHS website or through the links on students’ Naviance home page. The first time students log on, they will need to sign up. Carondelet has paid the fee for all CHS students to have access to MTP which offers an initial assessment, lesson plans, practice questions, and full length practice exams. Online registration for ACT is available at www.act.org and at www.collegeboard.com for SAT. If students help registering for tests, accessing Method Test Prep, or have questions about which tests to take or when, please come to the College & Career Center.
