Sign up for a practice test!

St. Mary’s Academy College Counseling has partnered with Compass Education to offer an on-campus, paper/pencil, ACT practice test (linear, non-adaptive) at no cost. The test results are invaluable in helping the St. Mary’s Academy college counselors and Compass directors to craft the ideal testing and tutoring plan for each student.

In addition, the brand new Digital Adaptive SAT will be offered at no cost. This new test (learn all about it here) mimics the computer-based test — question type, content, timing, duration, and adaptive structure.

THE REGISTRATION DEADLINES ARE ONE WEEK BEFORE EACH EVENT.

DATE, TIME & LOCATION

  • ACT (paper/pencil, linear): At-School administration on Saturday, December 9th, at 9:00 AM (EST) at High School Forum. Shortly after registering and the week of the event, we will send you a full confirmation email.
