•  Free SAT or ACT testing opportunities for juniors 
The Maryland College and Career Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013 (CCRCCA) requires that all students in grade 11 be assessed for college & career readiness in English and mathematics by the end of the eleventh grade year. The SAT and ACT are measures used to determine college readiness. 



To assist families in completing this requirement, MCPS will provide each junior with one test voucher for testing on either the SAT or ACT in the spring of junior year.  Only one voucher per junior is available for any of the following test dates. The vouchers are for new registrations only, they cannot be applied to an existing or prior registration.  The vouchers are for the standard SAT or  ACT without writing.  Vouchers cannot be applied to other testing services or fees.
