SAT and ACT Updates
The SAT and ACT testing dates through May have been canceled. Please reach out to CollegeBoard or ACT for more information.
- It is strongly recommended that if you have a desire to take either test in June you should sign up ASAP. Archbishop Carroll is NOT a testing site for either exam again until next school year. Some colleges have decided to go test optional next year to alleviate any problems with being able to take the SAT/ACT. Do not rely on this being the case for every school. You should check colleges you are interested in to see if they have made this decision.
- SAT practice: Along with your Khan Academy account for SAT practice – you can also take a full test through them- Kaplan is offering free SAT/ACT tutoring for a month. To access this, go to your Naviance account, scroll down, and you’ll find a message for this on the left-hand side. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of either of these resources in preparing for the SAT/ACT.
- Students are asked to contact their counselors with any course selection questions. If you are unsure of who your counselor is, check our website under “CarrollU”.
- There is a copy of our updated COLLEGE PLANNING GUIDE on the website. Juniors are strongly encouraged to review this. Please contact your counselor with any questions.
- Seniors, continue to send in your college acceptances & scholarship offers to Miss DiMattia & Mrs. Nardelli. If you have committed to a school, please let us know that as well. If you have not visited a school yet and really wanted to, go to their website and take a virtual tour – most schools will have this feature & are enhancing this experience. Some schools are extending their deadline for responding to their offer of admission. Please check all your schools for this if you feel you need the extra time for decision making.
