Students should consider taking ACT, SAT tests
As a new school year begins, Vermillion High School juniors and seniors should give some thought to participation in the ACT and/or SAT Assessment Programs.

The guidance office recommends that students participate in the ACT Assessment Program and/or SAT Achievement Series during their junior year or early in their senior year so the results will be available in time for use in planning for post-secondary education and careers.

Both the ACT and SAT Assessments have expanded and updated their programs to provide students and educators with new kinds of information. Students can obtain registration packets that contain all the information necessary to register and prepare for the assessments from the guidance office or do registration on-line at: ACT – www.actstudent.org; SAT – www.collegeboard.com.


The basic registration fees are: ACT – $29, plus writing- $43; SAT – $41.50.

Late registration will be accepted by both ACT and SAT with an additional handling fee.

ACT and SAT computer preparation programs are available.

Colleges use information from the ACT and/or SAT Assessment Programs for academic advising, admissions counseling, course sectioning and placement, student services, and institutional research. ACT and SAT Assessment reports are sent to students, their high school counselors, and only those institutions and agencies specifically designated by the student.

For more information about the ACT and/or SAT Assessments contact: the high school guidance office, phone 677-7033.
