SAT/PSAT/ACT Information

SAT / PSAT / ACT Information

Dear Students and Parents:

Here is information regarding the PSAT, SAT and ACT tests. You should be able to obtain registration bulletins from a local high school, community college or a public library. If you cannot obtain the form for some reason, please call Seton and we will be able to supply one to you. The registration bulletins list the centers and the dates; please check them for the center most convenient for you. Also, please use the Seton CEEB code number ONLY for the SAT and ACT. This code number is: 470 902.

It is important for Juniors (11th graders) to take the PSAT test, as there are scholarship opportunities based on the results. Most notably, the National Merit Scholarship program uses the PSAT as their benchmark. Ask a local high school for registration. For the PSAT, it is very important that you DO NOT USE the Seton school code. Please use the state code provided for home schoolers listed at the end of this notice. It is important to use this code because home school students should be compared for scholarship purposes with others from their own states.

Current SAT and PSAT test dates and other information may be found at http://www.collegeboard.com/testing

Current ACT test information may be found on the ACT Web site at http://www.act.org

The Internet is by far your best source for information on scholarships and financial aid. Putting in key words such as “scholarship,” or “college tuition help” and the like should gain you a wealth of information.

Any student athletes looking for NCAA scholarships should contact NCAA immediately for information regarding initial eligibility requirements. The procedure for home schooled athletes is a bit more complicated than for most. For up-to-date information on the process, please contact the NCAA at:

Virginia residents should be aware that the state offers a grant of $2000.00 to students who attend a Virginia college, public or private. Other states may offer a similar program; it might be worth your while to call your state education department to investigate the possibility.

Many of you have called on the availability of Seton school rings. Contact Fred Foster, a Front Royal jeweler: 540-636-1311.

As always, if you have further questions about college testing, scholarships, graduation requirements or college entrance, feel free to call. We will be happy to help in any way we can.

Yours in Christ,

Robert M. Wiesner
