College bound juniors are advised to take the PSAT in October. This is a practice version of the SAT and is also used for National Merit Scholarship eligibility. Tickets will go on sale in the ASB office in late September.  Juniors should take the SAT and/or the ACT in May or June. See the links below to sign up for either or both exams.


Not all online courses meet the UC/CSU A-G requirements for college entrance.  To determine if a particular course is approved, go to the UC website to  view the online provider's approved A-G course list.  To do so, click on this link:

Adult Education Spring Session

Students interested in taking classes for credit recovery at Adult Ed in the Spring Session should see their counselor for an application in January.  Applications from seniors will be accepted during the week of January 25. Students who have a strong preference for specific days of the week should plan to register earlier in the week.  If space is available for juniors, applications will be accepted the week of February 15.


Athletes who have applied to the NCAA Clearinghouse must have their official SAT/ACT scores submitted to the Eligibility Center directly from the College Board or ACT program. If you have any questions, see your counselor asap.

Senior SAT/ACT Registration

College Bound.jpg
College bound seniors should sign up to take the SAT or ACT (or both) by December. Students may take these tests more than once and most colleges will use the highest score for admissions purposes. Links to the websites for both tests are listed below. If you sign up now, you are more likely to be assigned to the local testing site you prefer. The SAT is given at RHS in May.

Letters of Recommendation for College Applications or Scholarships

Are you a senior applying to a private school or scholarship program that requires a letter of recommendation from a teacher or counselor?  If so, be sure to allow plenty of time for the person to do a great job. Two weeks are recommended but three weeks are even better!  Use the link on Family Connections to make your request and fill out your "brag sheet". Don't forget to check due dates and plan accordingly, taking into account vacations when staff may not be available.
