    NOTE: PSU will no longer require the ACT writing.  With the redesigned SAT now available, PSU will not require the SAT writing.

     Most colleges accept SAT and ACT scores. Many students prepare for and take both exams.  We encourage you to use your personal email address when signing up for these exams (rather than your SCASD email account) since your SCASD account is disconnected upon graduation.


    ALSO...Here are some basic charts that may help you to make some comparisons:

    Practice with the Khan Academy:

    The College Board has teamed up with the Khan Academy to provide personalized Official SAT Practice — totally free.
