SAT/ACT BOOT CAMP
We understand that the upcoming college admissions process may be very confusing for many families. For many years we have offered our SAT/ACT Boot Camps as a fundraiser in partnership with DB Academics to provide Trabuco Hills High School students with “last minute” preparation before taking the SAT or ACT.
Rest assured, we are watching the news closely regarding policy changes for the SAT and ACT. The Cal State system recently announced its admissions process will be “test blind” and the UC system announced its admissions process will be “test optional”. Private and out-of-state schools across the country are announcing their own policies regarding testing requirements for admissions. You can look up any school on the NACAC database to see their policies for the upcoming Fall 2020 application cycle: https://www.nacacnet.org/news--publications/newsroom/press-releases/nacac-member-colleges-affirm-test-optional/
Why should your student consider taking the SAT or ACT if many schools are not requiring them?
While SAT or ACT scores may not be used for making admissions decisions, they still may be used for the evaluation for:
College course placement
UC System CA Statewide Guarantee - Automatic qualification for the UC system (not a specific UC school) by being in the top 9% of California high school graduates. This admissions index calculator uses test scores in the calculation. https://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/admission-requirements/freshman-requirements/california-residents/statewide-guarantee/
We will continue to offer our SAT/ACT Boot Camp, but in a modified online format for the Fall 2020. We feel this change will address social distancing concerns and allow students to prepare for the SAT and ACT in an interactive and engaging environment.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
