The Library provides access to online SAT & ACT practice exams for students in grades 9-12. The exams are free, full-length, and proctored, and are beneficial both as a study tool and to measure your performance. Exams begin at 10am and are available for the next few days, and take approximately 3 hours to complete (it is recommended you take them in one seating, just like the real test). Find the next available practice exam on the Events page to register (seats are limited). The link to the test portal is emailed out the night before. Offered in partnership with Summit Library & C2 Education.
The Library has dozens of practice books for the ACT, SAT, AP exams and more— just climb the spiral staircase to the second-floor Nonfiction area, and find the 378 Dewey shelf, or search the online catalog.
Both Brainfuse’s HelpNow and Peterson’s Test Prep, available on the Digital Resources page, have dozens of study guides and full sample tests, spanning every subject and grade level, including resources for those going into college. Not only are the ACT/SAT both covered, but learn more about financial aid literacy, college & scholarship search, and career/vocational exams.
Applying for college is a big enough decision that you don’t need something like a missed deadline, or missed opportunity of necessary financial aid, to make that decision for you. Get all the facts first, make a schedule of tasks, and ease your way through applying to colleges and/or scholarships. Below you’ll find a handful of websites that have both a college search & a scholarship search— just enter your information in the search to start whittling down colleges to those that fit you best.
The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is a form that more than half of college students will fill out and submit to the federal government to see if they qualify for any type of financial aid. Assistance can come in the form of scholarships/grants, work-study programs, or loans.
