    • Sign up for the PSAT by the beginning of September to prepare for the SAT and to make yourself eligible for the National Merit Scholarship, National Achievement Scholarship, and the National Hispanic Recognition Program.

    • Update or create your resume and continue filing away your important dates and awards.
    • Take ACT in the spring at school, then register and take the SAT before the end of the year (then plan to take the one you feel you performed the best on at the start of senior year).  Want to compare your SAT & ACT scores? Click here!
