College Entrance Exams


Both the ACT and the SAT are nationally administered standardized tests that help colleges evaluate candidates. Almost all colleges and universities accept either test.


The following websites provide a comparison of the SAT and ACT:

All juniors in the State of Delaware take the School Day SAT for FREE in the Spring.  The date is set by The College Board & the Delaware Department of Education, but is typically in March or April. 


In addition to taking the required School Day SAT as juniors, students can register to take the SAT during a Saturday administration. It is recommended that students take the SAT at least one more time after the spring test their junior year (typically the fall of senior year).  Please visit the College Board SAT website for additional information about test dates & locations: SAT


Students may also choose to register for the ACT. Please visit the ACT website for additional information: ACT
