Registration is now open for ACT test being held on March 24

On March 24, 2020, all 11th grade students will have the opportunity to take the ACT at SAHS. The ACT is a standardized assessment commonly used for college admissions in the United States. Using a multiple choice testing format, the ACT assesses the four academic skill areas of English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science reasoning. A fifth test in the subject of writing requires students to write an essay based on a particular prompt.

The ACT will be available to all juniors as well as those seniors who did not take the ACT as a part of the state ACT testing program at SAHS last year. This is an opt-in opportunity; only students who register will take the test. Registration for ACT testing on March 24 must be completed through feepay by February 1, 2020. Read More.
