Applying to American Universities and Colleges:
Students who are interested in pursuing an education in an American post-secondary school should begin planning for this no later than grade 11. American schools require students to write a specialized exam called the SAT at www.collegeboard.com or ACT at www.act.org, the dates of which are posted outside of the Guidance and Career Education Office. Students can write the exam more than once and the best scores are the ones that are counted.
