ACT, SAT, and AP Exams
ACT Test Information
The majority of our juniors take the ACT Test at least once. It is required by most of the colleges and universities attended by our graduates. ACT test scores can impact the availability of scholarships as well as financial aid, so we encourage our students to prepare for the exam as best they can. Once a year FVL offers a Saturday ACT test prep class, and there is also a series of classes which are regularly available at Xavier (registration information is below).
Typically, the ACT Test is offered in September, October, December, February, April, and June. It is important to note that the registration deadline is approximately 5 weeks prior to the test date. There is a little bit of a grace period after the deadline, but a late fee is charged. You can find information about registration and dates at this link - ACT Test
Registering for the ACT Test is a rather involved process, incorporating many questions about courses that have been (and will be) taken, grades, career goals, and more. Allow some time to go through the form and thoroughly answer the questions. You will have the ability to list the schools to which you want the test results sent.

SAT Test Information
Some of our students will need to take the SAT to be considered for their choice of post-secondary education. Each student will need to look at the requirements of the schools to which an application is being submitted. The SAT is another test for which preparation is strongly suggested. The score will, as with the ACT, potentially greatly impact scholarships as well as available financial aid. A prep class for the SAT is not offered at FVL as it is not a frequently-taken test by students in the area. Search online for prep options in your area.
