Testing and Test Prep

Most colleges are test optional for current seniors planning to attend college in Fall 2021.  Some colleges will continue this policy for current juniors who plan to attend college in Fall 2022, but most haven't announced their decision on this yet. 

According to the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) 2020-21 schedule of Illinois State Assessments, juniors will take the SAT at PNHS on April 13, 2021.  

Students who are interested in taking additional tests outside of school can learn more about the tests, view dates/locations, register, and prepare for the tests on the SAT (College Board) or ACT websites.  

Deciding whether to take the SAT or ACT outside of school is a personal/family decision.  Each test is different, so some students may get a higher score on one test or the other.  Students should do research to compare the SAT and ACT tests to determine which test is right for them.  Keep in mind that colleges will accept either test, and colleges convert scores using the ACT/SAT Concordance Tables.


Test Prep


PNHS is partnering with ExcelEdge to offer after school SAT Test Prep starting in February.  

Many students also use Khan Academy to prepare online.
