The SAT is a national college admission examination that measures developed mathematical and verbal reasoning abilities as well as writing skills. It is recommended to be taken spring of the junior year. Registration packets are available in the guidance office or you may register online. Questions regarding testing at PVHS should be directed to Mr. Charles Cerrato at 904-547-7350.
A number of highly selective colleges and universities require students to show proficiency in certain subject areas for either admission or placement. The SAT II Subject Tests are designed to measure knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge in specific subject areas. Students should check with their perspective colleges to find out specific test requirements.

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 packets are available in the guidance office or you may register online. For information about the ACT college entrance exam or to register online, please visit the ACT website.
The PSAT-NMSQT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test – National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) is a practice test for the SAT. If a student knows he/she will need the SAT as part of admissions requirements, taking the PSAT is an excellent idea. The PSAT-MNSQT is also used for qualifying scholarship competitions for juniors. All 10th grade students take the PSAT for free, it is paid for by the state. We also expect all 9th and 11th grade students to take the PSAT. There is a fee for 9th and 11th grade students who would like a copy of their PSAT scores.
Ponte Vedra High School will be administering the PSAT on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 in the student’s homeroom. This is the only date in which this test will be administered at PVHS; there is no make-up day.
