General Testing Information


All students who are planning to attend a post-secondary college or university should take the SAT and/or ACT before graduation from BLHS.   

Suggested Timeline For Standardized Testing
--10th Grade Fall - take the PSAT (practice SAT) in the fall semester
--11th Grade Fall - take the PSAT for the second time if preferred
--11th Grade Spring - take the SAT or ACT 
*BLHS will administer the SAT or ACT to each 11th grade student in the spring semester.  This will be free of cost and held during the school day.  During your IGP meeting your counselor will ask you which test you prefer to take*
--12th Grade Fall - retake the SAT or ACT to improve scores if needed

It is ultimately your responsibility to find out what test is needed for the technical school, college, or university you plan to attend.   Please check with the school you are interested in attending for their SAT/ACT requirements, or any placement test they require.

After your free BLHS testing administration during the spring semester of your 11th grade year, you are responsible for registering for future testing sessions.  It is recommended that you take the SAT or ACT (or a combination of both) more than once, as colleges superscore your highest scores across all testing dates.
