Juniors – What to Do in January
Now is the time to sign up for the SAT and ACT tests. If you are already signed up – you’re ahead! Things to consider when planning WHEN to take the tests:
If you have already finished Intermediate Algebra, we recommend taking the SAT in January or March and the ACT in February.
If you are currently enrolled in Intermediate Algebra, we recommend taking the tests in May or June.
If you plan to take SAT Subject Tests, the best time is in May or June just as you finish a particular class. For athletes, the tests often fall on tournament weekends, so try to plan your tests around competitions as soon as you have your schedule.
Also, it is time to start thinking seriously about your goals and desires for college. How far away from home do you want to move? How important is the weather? Do you have some ideas on what you want to study? Are you committed to playing a sport?
