To help current Academy juniors prepare for the May 2013 SAT, the Governor's College Counseling Office will offer several all-class SAT review sessions at no additional cost to students.
While standardized testing is an important dimemsion of most college admission processes, the College Counseling Office encourages Academy students to focus primarily on their classwork and extracurricular activities.
Juniors then typically sit for their first SAT in either December or January. Then, they are encouraged to retake the SAT in May following our SAT review sessions.
With results from both tests-- and in consultation with their college counselor-- rising seniors may opt for appropriate test prep (arranged independently) the summer before their senior year.
Depending on students' SAT results, their learning style, and their overall school commitments, the College Counseling Office may also suggest the ACT.
Depending on their college admission goals, juniors are also often encouraged to take at least two SAT II subject tests in June.
