A.C.T. : Since students in Michigan are no longer automatically taking the A.C.T., if you would like to take this test you will have to sign up through A.C.T. directly on their website. Most colleges will take either S.A.T. or A.C.T. scores as part of the college admissions process. If you are unsure as to how the S.A.T. will go, we would encourage you to take both tests. Send all of your scores to colleges or for scholarship opportunities and whichever score is higher will be the one that is used. Come see your counselor if you have a question about whether or not you should take the A.C.T.
Khan Academy : This free service has partnered with CollegeBoard to provide exclusive access to preparation materials for the re-designed S.A.T. tests. Through Khan Academy you can upload your P.S.A.T. or S.A.T. results, or take diagnostic testing, to develop a personalized road map for S.A.T. test preparation.

P.S.A.T./N.M.S.Q.T. : This Preliminary S.A.T. (P.S.A.T.) administration serves as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (N.M.S.Q.T.) for junior students and is a great preparation for the S.A.T. which all juniors take in the spring. The P.S.A.T./N.M.S.Q.T. will be administered to Juniors on October at Milford High School. The P.S.A.T./N.M.S.Q.T. is the only test that allows students to qualify for a National Merit Scholarship. This is an optional test, so you must purchase a test. In order to reserve a test, follow these steps:
- Purchase P.S.A.T./N.M.S.Q.T 2016 for $19 on PaySchools. **If you receive free or reduced lunch, you may qualify for a fee waiver. If this is the case, skip to Step 2.**
- After paying and completing the registration survey online, you can pick up your P.S.A.T./N.M.S.Q.T. This includes information about the test as well as a full length practice test.
P.S.A.T. 10 and P.S.A.T. 8/9 : All 8th, 9th, and 10th grade students will now be taking the P.S.A.T. 9th and 10th graders will take these tests on April 11, 2017. These assessments will provide a great opportunity to practice for taking the S.A.T. in junior year and will provide students with information on their skills, college readiness, and suggestions for scheduling appropriate coursework in the future.
S.A.T. : All juniors will take the redesigned S.A.T. on April 11, 2017 through Milford High School. Only if you are planning to take the S.A.T. early or to retake the S.A.T. do you need to register and find a testing location through the College Board website.
