SAT and ACT Information

All BCPS students are registered to take a PSAT in the fall of 9th, 10th, and 11th grade.  All 11th grade students are registered by BCPS for an April School Day SAT.  If your student would like to take an additional SAT test during 11th and 12th grade, they should create a College Board account and register.  All test dates and locations will be listed on their site.  Be aware of registration deadlines a month or so prior to each test.  Students are responsible for sending their own test scores from College Board and ACT to each college they apply to for admission.

If you are interested in registering for an ACT, please visit their site to sign up.

A good way to decide which test to take is to take a practice test on each site, and see which one you perform better on.  Fee waivers are available for those students who are on Free and Reduced Meals.
