PSAT/SAT & ACT

Students who are applying or planning to apply to a four-year university are highly encouraged to take the PSAT/SAT or ACT before their senior year and again during their senior year. 

PSAT:

At this time, Valencia is planning to host the PSAT for VHS Juniors only on October 16th, 2021.  Juniors will be able to purchase the test through the VHS student store or finance window for $35 before September 15th, 2021. 

Registration:

Students can register for the SAT at sat.collegeboard.org. Students can register for the ACT at actstudent.org. Remember to register early before the deadline in order to claim a seat. If students do not register early, all spots may be filled or the test may have to be taken at a location in a different city. 

Fee Waivers:

SAT/ACT fee waivers are available to help pay for test registration fees. If you qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch, you are eligible for a fee waiver. The SAT fee waiver is good for two SAT tests and two SAT Subject tests. SAT fee waivers will show when registering for your SAT, if you do not see this option when registering please email Mr. Cruz at bcruz@pylusd.org. The ACT fee waiver covers two ACT tests and can be obtained by emailing Mr. Cruz at bcruz@pylusd.org. 

Sending your scores:

Most universities require students to send their scores. Scores are to be sent via their SAT/ACT accounts mentioned above. If students are eligible for a fee waiver, they may send up to four free score reports on the SAT and ACT to the college of their choice.

SAT vs. ACT

The SAT tests students in critical reading, math, and writing in order to measure general verbal quantitative reasoning skills. The ACT tests students' overall high school academic achievement in the subjects: English, mathematics, science and reading.
