SAT/ACT Testing Links

ACT/SAT
The SAT (CollegeBoard) and the ACT are college entrance exams.  Students should begin taking these tests their junior year.  Colleges use the information from these tests to determine admission and to help determine merit-based scholarships.  The higher the scores, the more scholarship money a college will potentially award.  
 
If a student is on Free and Reduced Lunch or in foster care, RHS has fee waivers for the test.  A student may receive one waiver per year per test  The cost of the tests for 2019 are $64.50 for the SAT (with the essay) and $67 for the ACT (with the essay).  
 
Security is VERY high at these tests.  A student will need to print an admission ticket that they will upload a picture to when they register and an additional picture ID.  If the student does not have a drivers license or other picture ID, please check with our office to learn how to secure a school ID.  Students must take their own non-mechanical pencil and a calculator.  Phones are NOT allowed.  A calculator may be checked out from the math department.
