Students will have a choice to either take a FREE in-school SAT at Quince Orchard High School on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 OR receive a FREE voucher to take the ACT on Saturday, April 13, 2019 or Saturday, June 8, 2019. Students are highly encouraged to take advantage of ONE of these two options. Students may not take both the in-school SAT and use an ACT voucher. These are the only free options and dates available to students. Students may not retroactively apply the ACT voucher to a test already taken or use the ACT voucher for a date other than those previously mentioned. Likewise, the in-house SAT will only be offered once. Please keep in mind that the in-school SAT and the ACT voucher are the non-essay versions. There is no free option to take the in-school SAT or ACT offsite with the essay. There is no option to receive a voucher to take a free SAT offsite. These rules are stipulated by an agreement between Montgomery County Public Schools, College Board (SAT), and ACT.
Students wishing to register for the either the in-school SAT on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 or register for the April 13, 2019 or June 8, 2019 ACT using a voucher must do so by no later than Friday, February 22, 2019. Students will be able to register in the College and Career Center beginning Monday, February 11, 2019. Please note that students wishing to register for the ACT vouchers will not receive their voucher when they register. Following the registration deadline on Friday, February 22, 2019, all students who have registered for either the in-school SAT or ACT voucher will have their request reviewed. Any student who inadvertently registers for both the SAT and ACT will be forced to choose one, not both. Any student deemed not to be a current junior will not be allowed to utilize these free options. Students who have registered for the ACT vouchers will be able to retrieve their voucher by Friday, March 1, 2019. Each voucher includes detailed instructions from ACT on how to register for either the April or June test date and apply the voucher. Further details on how and when to retrieve the ACT voucher for those who have registered by the deadline will be provided at a later time.
