Junior Year Final 50



Junior Year Final 50
For most students, junior year is THE YEAR to demonstrate that they are college and career ready, often by earning passing scores on the SAT, ACT or CAASP.

Demonstrating readiness is important because students who do not demonstrate that they are college and career ready before they graduate often pay more for their education, are less likely to graduate on time, and are more likely to drop out.

For this reason, we recommend that all juniors spend 50 hours on test prep this spring (25 hours before the March SAT and another 25 hours before the CAASP). 

Resources
CollegeBoard--The CollegeBoard has many resources to help students improve students' math and English skills using SAT study materials.  Preparation for college starts in 8th grade with the PSAT 8/9, shifts to the PSAT in 10th grade and the PSAT/NMSQT in 11th grade, and finishes with the SAT, which colleges use for admissions. To find out what PSAT 8/9, PSAT/NMSQT and SAT scores your child needs to earn to get into various colleges, click here.

Khan Academy--Khan Academy has partnered with CollegeBoard to provide students with additional SAT study materials, including specialized practice based on students' PSAT/SAT scores. Students can set up a practice and testing schedule that will keep them on track, monitor their progress and adjust their preparation based on the questions they've answered on the practice tests. For an overview on Khan Academy's SAT study program, watch this video!

 ACT--The ACT is also used for college admissions and tests similar math and English skills as the SAT, but also has sections on science and history. Some colleges prefer one or the other, but most accept both and ACT and the SAT. ACT test prep resources are available on their website. ACT logo
