SAT/ACT

College Entry Exams

 
 
One of the many steps to the college application process is to take the SAT and/or ACT. Both are standardized college entry exams with some similarities, but also many differences. You can find a detailed handout of these differences here. Below, you can find a list of the SAT and ACT test dates. Please keep in mind that we only offer SAT testing at Deer Lakes High School once in the Fall and once in the spring each year, however, students can test at any location that offers the test. We do not offer ACT testing at Deer Lakes High School, but again, students may register and test at any location that offers it.
