SAT/ACT Information

Hanover High School is proud to be an active location for students to take the SAT and ACT.

According to COLLEGE BOARD HANDBOOK, the required college admission tests provide very important information to both you and to the college to which you are applying.

From your scores, you

  • have a way of comparing yourself with students already attending the colleges you are considering;

  • have the opportunity to see what you have achieved and learned throughout your academic life.

From your scores, colleges

  • are able to compare you with others applying for admission and with those students currently enrolled in the institution;

  • have a fair, standardized way for the admission staff to predict the likelihood of your success in the college.

It is very important to know the tests required for each school you are considering.
