    SAT & ACT
    What are your post-graduation plans? If the answer is a four-year college, please note that submitting Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Testing (ACT) scores are a common admissions requirement. Not sure which exam to take? Go to the SAT and ACT websites to research the exams and try some practice questions. You may also opt to take both exams in the spring of your junior year in order to determine which exam works best for you. In the fall of your senior year, you may also decide to take one of these exams again in hopes of boosting your scores.



  • SAT
    Students considering a four-year college typically take the SAT once in the spring of their junior year and once in the fall of their senior year.

    The SAT is a standardized test administered by the College Board and is widely used for college admissions and scholarships. It includes an Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section and a Math section. There is also an optional Writing section.

    The SAT is offered several times throughout the school year. Juniors typically take the SAT in March, May, or June. Seniors typically take the test in August, October, November, or December. Please note the following:

    • You must register for the SAT through the College Board website. The registration deadline is approximately one month before the exam date. 
    • Please note that BVT is not a host school for the SAT. You typically take the SAT in your hometown. 
    • Students with disabilities who have been approved for College Board accommodations should use their SSD code when they register. 
    • Students on free/reduced lunch should see their School Counselor for an SAT fee waiver.

    For more information, the College Board offers practice tests and questions for the SAT. In addition, BVT hosts an SAT Prep Course in the fall for seniors and in the spring and summer for juniors.


    Please note SAT scores must be sent to colleges through the College Board website.

    • When you register for the SAT, you can send up to four free score reports to colleges. This method of sending scores also has the shortest delivery time. 
    • After the exam, it will take about three weeks for the College Board to grade your exam and post your SAT scores online.
    • Once your exam is graded and your order has been submitted, it will take approximately one to two weeks for SAT scores to be delivered to a college.
    • College Board defaults to sending all of your available score reports at the time you make the request. If for some reason you would like to only send one set of SAT scores, you can use their Score Choice option.

  • ACT
    Students considering a four-year college may take the ACT once in the spring of their junior year and once in the fall of their senior year.

    The ACT is a standardized test that is widely used for college admissions. It includes an English, Math, Reading, and Science section. There is also an optional Writing section.

    The ACT is offered several times throughout the school year. Juniors typically take the ACT in April, June, or July. Seniors typically take the test in September, October, or December. Please note the following:

    • You must register for the ACT through the ACT website. The registration deadline is approximately one month before the exam date.
    • BVT is not a host school for the ACT. You typically take the ACT in your hometown.
    • The ACT offers practice tests and questions through their website.
    • Students with disabilities should see their School Counselor if they wish to apply for accommodations through the ACT Test Accessibility and Accommodations System.
    • Students on free/reduced lunch should check with their School Counselor to see if ACT fee waivers are available, which are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Please note that ACT scores must be sent to colleges through the ACT website.

    • When you register for the ACT, you can send up to four free score reports to colleges, this method of sending scores also has the shortest delivery time.
    • After the exam, it will take about two weeks for the test center to grade your exam and post your ACT scores online.
    • Once your exam is graded and your order has been submitted, ACT will process your request within one week. ACT then delivers your scores as part of a regular report sent to colleges at least every two weeks.
    • ACT only reports scores from the test date you designate.
