Should my student take the SAT/ACT or not?

Many parents and students are wondering if it is important to take a test when some schools are test-optional.

We recommend ALL students take a test since it is a great measure of how your student is performing on a national level. It gives schools a bit more information on the students' readiness for college-level courses.

This information can be very helpful for schools in determining if a student will do well in their courses. In many cases, with all other factors being equal, it can give your student an advantage over a student without a test score.

It is also an important factor when determining Merit-Based Scholarships since most are determined based on national standards.
