ACT/SAT Test Dates and Recommendation Update

The Guidance Department is currently recommending an accelerated timeline for DCHS students to take the ACT or SAT.  Many students are registering for College Credit Plus and Dual Enrollment courses on campus as early as the ninth grade. Most colleges will require ACT or SAT scores for admittance.  If you are planning on taking a CCP or Dual Enrollment courses we recommend taking the ACT by January of the year you plan to apply for one of these programs.  For college applications, we are recommending that Juniors take the test for the first time no later than January of their Junior year and to plan on taking at least three times prior to December of their Senior year.

Students who have enrolled in Dual Enrollment Psychology for next year and have not yet taken the ACT or SAT should register and take one of the upcoming tests listed below.
