Standardized Testing

VES is an ACT and College Board approved testing site, and we offer the ACT and SAT on campus on the testing dates that best align with our students’ schedules and needs. Whenever school is in session and there is a test not offered on campus, we are happy to provide transportation for boarding students to the closest testing site.

It is important to remember that all colleges and universities accept either the ACT or SAT. As such, our college counselors assess students’ performance on the PSAT and Pre-ACT they take in their sophomore year to make individualized recommendations about the test on which they will likely be most successful. This helps us work with families to create a test prep and testing plan that best serves each individual student.

We also want to highlight the fact that more and more colleges and universities are choosing to become test-optional in the admissions process. To learn more about test-optional colleges, check out the Fair Test website.
