    PSAT

    Due to COVID19 and virtual learning WFHS will not be taking this time in October this year. 

    The PSAT is an optional College Board examination administered in October of every school year.  The exam is scored from 20-80 for each of following sections: Critical Reading, Mathematics and Writing. It is meant to be a practice test and can give you a good idea on what you can do to prepare for the SAT.  It is administered to students in any grade level during the school day for a fee of $16.  The PSAT itself has NO bearing on college admissions.  So, why take it?
    • The PSAT provides you with good information about what you can do to prepare for the SAT examinations you might take later on.
    • The PSAT is used by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation to qualify students for various scholarships based on their Junior year PSAT scores.
    • Colleges and universities use the information from the PSAT as a means to begin communicating with students regarding higher education and financial aid opportunities.

    Pre-ACT

    The Pre-ACT consists of multiple-choice tests in English, math, reading, and science. It is REQUIRED for all sophomores (free of charge) in the fall.  For more information, visit the Pre-ACT website

    ACT

    All students who are in 11th grade in Powerschool are REQUIRED to take the ACT once for free here at school. This usually takes place in late February or early March.


    The SAT vs. ACT
    The SAT and ACT are two competing examinations for college entrance.  Most schools will accept either an SAT or an ACT score BUT check with the school you are considering to see what they prefer.  We suggest that you take both the SAT and ACT and see which one you score higher on, then concentrate on that test.
