College Entrance Exams - SAT & ACT
To go directly to a 4 year college, entrance exams are required. Students can take the SAT or the ACT, most colleges accept either one. MHS does not offer these tests on our campus. Students will need to sign up for the SAT at collegeboard.org and they can sign up for the ACT at act.org . Both websites offer valuable information and free test prep so make sure you take a look at them. Please see your counselor for further information.
