SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test for Juniors
Saturday, November 3, 2018
8:15 - 12:30 pm

Standardized tests are a part of the admissions application process.  Students will begin to take the SAT or ACT in their junior year.  Since most colleges will super-score (take the highest section scores on the SAT or highest composite on the ACT), it is to your advantage to take a standardized test more than once.
 
Many of you are wondering “Which test should he take?”   To help answer that question, we are bringing back our SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test.   It will take place at Devon Prep on Saturday, November 3, 2018, from 8:15 – 12:30 pm.  The SAT-ACT Diagnostic Test is a practice, hybrid test of the SAT and the ACT.  Students and parents will have the opportunity to get his results on both tests and then decide which test he will continue with throughout junior/senior years. Results will be distributed at a Debrief meeting on Tuesday, November 13 at 7:00 pm.


For more information or a registration form, please contact Mrs. Eshleman at eeshleman@devonprep.com or 610-688-7337 x172.
