Standardized Testing

Standardized testing is an intractable part of college admissions, apart from the 700+ colleges and universities which have decided to become “test-optional” (see to learn more—you’ll be surprised at how many of these schools you know). There is also a multi-billion dollar industry thriving on the fears and insecurities of young people facing these tests. Our goal in the college office is to help you separate the hype and mania from what’s best for you, and to help you find a path through your testing that will be both effective and balanced.
