Signing up for ACT/SAT
Students may register to take the ACT and/or SAT multiple times each year. Most colleges/universities allow students to select which scores they would like to share during the admissions process. Some schools require specific test scores (ACT plus writing, SAT Subject Tests), so please consult individual school websites for admission and application requirements and plan a testing schedule accordingly.
Other than the free ACT that is given to all students in April of junior year, students must register for the ACT on their own. Parkway Central hosts the Saturday national test dates in October and February of each year if you prefer testing at your home school. Registration for all national test dates is completed at the ACT website. We recommend that students have exposure to Algebra 2 prior to testing, to have the best opportunity for success on the math portion of the ACT. If you typically receive testing accommodations, please refer to the Requesting Testing Accommodations site for more information.
To register for the SAT or SAT Subject tests, students would go to the College Board website. The SAT assessment suite has been redesigned, so it is important for students to review those changes on the College Board website prior to taking the exam. Parkway Central does not host any SAT test dates. If you typically receive testing accommodations, please refer to the Requesting Testing Accommodations site for more information.
