College Entrance Exams
Avon High School's Counseling Department recommends that if students are considering attending a four year college that they take both an SAT and an ACT test by the end of their junior year.
The SAT and ACT generally test the same types of content. Both ACT and SAT scores are used for college admissions and merit-based scholarships. The biggest differences between the tests are that the ACT has a Science Test, and there’s one SAT Math Section for which you cannot use a calculator. Colleges don't prefer one over the other.
When you register for the SAT and the ACT you are given the option of sending your test scores to up to four colleges for free. Your test scores are not included on your transcript. We recommend that you use these four free score reports so that you do not have to pay to have your scores sent at a later date.
The SAT and ACT dates for the 2019-2020 school year can be found here. The ones highlighted in yellow are the ones that will be offered at Avon High School.
