Twelfth-grade students should plan to take the test during the first semester of the senior year in order to have scores available to send to four-year colleges for admission in the fall semester of 2021. Eleventh-grade students should plan to take either SAT or ACT for the first time starting in the spring of their junior year.

Special precautions will be taken to ensure student safety during any SAT or ACT test administration session. Social distancing protocols will be followed as prescribed by the Virginia Department of Education and Prince William County Public Schools.

Students must register for the SAT or ACT online at the websites listed below. Fee waivers are available for students with financial need. Reach out to your school counselor or e-mail studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu if you have questions about registering or paying for either the SAT or ACT.
