PSAT/PACT --October 2019

This year Irvine High is offering a practice SAT and ACT to all students. Students are able to use their accommodations on the test, but it requires your consent and an application to college board that our administrator submits. Students also have the opportunity to opt-out of the test. Please talk to your case carrier if you are interested in opting out in future years.

Benefits of taking the test:

  • Students get to practice the SAT
  • Students can place for National Merit (the top 1% of student at IHS)
  • Students are provided with some career and college information

Benefits of opting out:

  • Less stress
  • Students do not need to take the SAT (or ACT) if starting at community college
  • Students do career and college exploration id done through Directed Studies
