COLLEGE TESTING (PSAT, SAT, ACT, AP)

PSAT:

A practice PSAT will be held on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and is mandatory for all students in grades 9-11.

9th and 10th grade students will take the test online.

  • Materials will be emailed to students one week prior to the event. Every family has the option to schedule a free 30-minute score report review with Revolution Prep’s testing expert to assess specific strengths and areas of improvement. Schedule your consultation to review the score report with our school’s dedicated liaison, Dina Radovic.

11th grade students will take the test on campus. Juniors should register in the College Counseling office. Students should watch their emails for more details.

ACT: 

  • We are testing the ACT here at Tampa Prep throughout the fall. If you do not see the testing date you want, email Rosa Harwell at rharwell@tampaprep.org.
  • The MyACT is open for registration and is continually being updated as changes arise. Common questions are answered here.
  • ACT will send updates to registrants about cancellations, but you can also view them here.

SAT:

  • Updated every 3 hours, this page will list the SAT Test Center Closures.
  • The late registration fee has been waived for the September 26 and October 3 SAT test dates.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the College Board has expanded its distribution of electronic fee waiver codes to school counselors, test coordinators, and community-based organizations to make it easier for students to access SAT fee waivers.
  • SAT and SAT Subject Test Administration Updates

For the very latest up-to-date information about the ACT and SAT, keep an eye on updates posted by the ACT and the College Board.
