What kind of testing is required for college entrance and when should these tests be taken?

Homeschooled high school students can take the ACT, SAT and PSAT at their local high school by registering through the College Board website. College-bound students should take the PSAT in tenth grade as a practice round. The eleventh grade PSAT score is used to qualify for the National Merit selection. Your student should also take the SAT and/or ACT no later than the second semester of his/her junior year, in order to have scores available for scholarship applications.

How can my student prepare for the PSAT, SAT and ACT?

The key to success is practice. There are numerous practice resources available online.
