SAT, ACT set at Bandera High School

BISD

Bandera High School will be administering the ACT and the SAT in preparation for students' advancement to higher education after graduation. Education beyond high school increases the chances of higher pay because college graduates earn more money during their working years than people who stop their education at a high school diploma.
On Saturday, Oct. 24, Bandera High School will administer the ACT Test with the writing component. Some colleges require the writing component of the ACT, while others do not. On Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016, BHS will administer the SAT test. The last date to apply for registration for the SAT test on Jan. 23 will be Dec. 28, 2015.
College entrance is more than just about grade point averages. It is also about how students score on college entrance tests and what they have accomplished as a high school student. Today, most good jobs require more than a high school diploma.
The SAT and ACT, college entrance tests, are offered several times a year in the area. Most students take a college entrance test during the spring of their junior year and a second time during the fall of their senior year.
While scores on an entrance test are not the only criteria for acceptance into college, they are an important one. Going to college or vocational school is the way to get a head start on the future job market.
