College Testing Schedule

Most 2- and 4-year colleges and some scholarship programs (ROTC Scholarships for example), require the results of a College Entrance Examination be sent to them. Admissions officers and scholarship program officials use the test scores, together with your high school record and other criteria, to assess your ability to do the work required in a post-high school training program.

The most popular college entrance tests are: 

  1. The College Boards Scholastic Test (SAT)
  2. The American College Test (ACT)
  3. In addition, some colleges (the more selective ones) require the applicants to take the College Boards Achievement Tests (SAT II).

To decide if you should take a test, and which one and when, you must know the test requirements of post-high schools and the scholarship programs in which you are interested.

Students at KCS who are planning to continue their education after graduation will have the opportunity to take college entrance exams during the school year. Students are encouraged to register online at www.collegeboard.com and or www.ACTSTUDENT.org. If you need any further assistance please contact the Counseling Office.
