The table to the right is a quick overview of the tests given at TSAS during your final three years. Broadly, the end of instruction (EOI) tests are required for graduation and the ACT is used by universities and scholarship providers for determining eligibility.

To help you keep track of them, I have added all testing dates to the Calendar. Just click the Google icon on the bottom right to add them to your own.


The PreACT is a practice ACT test for all 10th graders that aligns closely to the ACT, providing feedback on academic strengths and opportunities for growth. Students will also receive guidance on career and college choices.

All juniors are encouraged to take the PSAT. Students earning a high enough score will be exempt from the following end of instruction tests: Algebra II, Geometry, and English III.

Additionally, this test taken junior year is the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The National Merit Scholarship will earn you a full ride to most universities across the country.

Necessary for most college applications and scholarship opportunities. All TSAS juniors will take the ACT free of charge in the spring of their junior year.

All students should take the ACT at least twice—once spring of junior year and once fall of senior year—but 10th graders taking advanced math classes may benefit from taking it early. Those interested in early action/decision should take it twice their junior year.
