SAT, ACT, AND OTHER STANDARDIZED TESTS
Many colleges require either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) for admission. Students are encouraged to talk with the counselor early during their junior year to determine the appropriate exam to take; these exams are usually taken at the end of the junior year. (Prior to enrollment in a Texas public college or university, most students must take a standardized test, such as the Texas Higher Education Assessment [THEA]).
COLLEGE CREDIT COURSES
Students in grades 9–12 have opportunities to earn college credit through the following methods:
All of these methods have eligibility requirements and must be approved prior to enrollment in the course. Only students in good standing are eligible in dual credit courses. Students are responsible for a tuition fee (to be determined) per course. Please see the counselor for more information.
