Standardized Testing

Standardized Testing Options

Any one student may have a wide disparity between SAT and ACT test scores. A student who does not score well on the SAT is likely to score substantially better on the ACT, which is intended to measure classroom achievement. Historically, students who aren’t “good test-takers” tend to score better on the ACT.

The testing formats and scoring systems of the two tests, while similar, do differ. When considering testing options, please consult the document A Comparison: ACT vs. SAT to learn more about the two tests.

While some colleges require one standardized test score, or even none at all, others require more scores to be submitted with an application. Please look at this document to see which colleges offer different testing options to applicants.

SAT and ACT prep is provided as an after optional school activity for ICS students in their junior and senior years. There are three sessions a year, in fall, winter, and spring, running concurrently with the sport seasons. Classes meet four days a week from 3:35 p.m. to 4:35 p.m.

Mr. Glenn Klakring, who was a professional SAT and ACT tutor before coming to Indian Creek, teaches the class. The class is available to ICS students at no charge, and all necessary books and materials are provided.
