As COVID numbers continue to make front page news, there is little doubt that the "test optional" decision by many colleges will hold for the near term.
So do you need to take the SAT or ACT?
The short answer: no.
The long and more nuanced answer: if you can access a testing site (which is a big "if"), AND you want to put yourself in the best position for college admission, it may be worth exploring your options.
Students striving for acceptance into highly selective schools can benefit from submitting a good test score. Also, students with any GPA challenges may want to get a test score on the books to compensate for any academic issues.
Since many students are considering all options, CROSSWALK is pleased to announce the Winter 2021 Test Prep Series starting January 5, 2021.
Join test prep expert Brooke Higgins and learn how to take advantage of this test optional moment. Classes are held remotely on Tuesday evenings from 7-8:30pm pacific time for eight weeks. Each class is a balance of both strategy and practice along with continual updates about the ever-evolving testing landscape.
And as an added bonus, after the conclusion of the 8-week course, every test prep series student will get a FREE scoring analysis and individual consultation after their next full-length test, practice or official. A $150 value for FREE!
Sign up right here. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.
