College Readiness (2016-2017)

SAT/ACT Resources

The SAT and ACT are standardized tests that colleges use as part of their application process. These tests are administered by the College Board and American College Testing respectively.  In order to help prepare students for these tests, the Skyline PTSA has teamed with SAT Prep/ACT Prep and Huntington Learning Centers to offer a number of affordable preparatory courses and mock testing opportunities right here at Skyline High School. Skyline and the PTSA recognize that there are many options for college test preparation in our area and do not endorse any one company over the other.

For more information about the SAT/ACT please refer to this FAQ. Email    Susan Schlosstein or MaryJo Webb if you have any questions.

The cost is $25 per test.  An optional feedback session is included with the practice exam fee. The feedback session is run by a Huntington representative. During this session, students can expect to receive their scored tests back and a few test taking strategies specific to the ACT and or SAT will also be discussed.
