Testing for College Admissions

Preparing for College Testing (Standardized Testing)

At Culver Academies, there are several opportunities for students to take the tests they need to gain admission to college. Our College Advising staff assists students with understanding and scheduling the tests they need to be successful in the college admissions process.

Every Culver student is provided access to an adaptive on-line test preparation program.  The PSAT is given to grades 9 - 11 in October.  Advisors hold class level meetings to preview, and review the PSAT and its role in preparing for the SAT and in future course selection.  In addition to an on-line adaptive program, Culver offers a SAT and ACT preparation class in Term 3 that is focused on the March SAT and April ACT.

Our advice on the SAT and ACT starts with planning to take two (2) SAT with Writing tests, and two (2) ACT with Writing tests in the junior year.  Students should always review their plan(s) with a college advisor.

Culver is a Test Center for the SAT, Subject Tests, and the ACT.
