ACT & SAT Testing

The St. Augustine High School code for SAT and ACT registration is 101-470. Students should enter this code on all SAT and ACT registrations. This allows the school to receive a copy of the scores for student records.

Students with Disabilities

PLEASE READ BEFORE REQUESTING ACT ACCOMMODATIONS: Please note, ACT requires two forms of documentation when applying for accommodations. One must be the IEP/504 and the other must be a doctors note or form of testing to support the diagnosis.  Without a second form of documentation ACT will NOT approve any request. Also, a student must be registered for a test before ACT will review accommodation requests. If you are not registered for a future test date ACT will automatically deny any request for accommodations.

SAT & ACT Waivers

Students who are in the 11th and 12th grade and are registered for free or reduced lunch through the St. Johns County School District are eligible to receive fee waivers for both the SAT and ACT. Students are allowed two waivers for both tests in a lifetime, not each year. These waivers can be used for the writing or no writing option for both the SAT and ACT. To receive your waivers, please see Ms. Naughton. Please allow adequate time before deadlines to pick up waivers as this is a multiple step process.

NEW TESTING INFORMATION 

NEW OPTIONS FOR ACT SECTION RETESTING: Beginning with the September 2020 national ACT test date, students who have already taken the ACT will be allowed allowed to retake individual ACT section tests (English, math, reading, science and/or writing), rather than having to take the entire ACT test again.

NEW ONLINE TESTING OPTION WITH FASTER SCORE RESULTS: Students will, for the first time, have the option of online or paper testing on national test days, (these are Saturday test dates only) at ACT test centers (selected test centers initially, eventually expanding to all, but dates has not been announced). The test is currently administered only on paper on national test dates. Online testing offers faster results compared to traditional paper-based administration—two days compared to around two weeks.

NEW ACT SUPER-SCORING: ACT will report a super-score for students who have taken the ACT test more than once, giving colleges the option to use the student’s best scores from all test administrations, rather than scores from just one sitting, in their admission and scholarship decisions. New ACT research suggests that super-scoring is actually more predictive of how students will perform in their college courses than other scoring methods.

The ACT is a national college admission examination that consists of subject area tests in English, Reading, Math, and Science. Students should also register for the writing section that is required at many colleges. It is recommended to be taken spring of the junior year. Registration is online. For information about the ACT college entrance exam or to register online, please visit the ACT website.
