*Many AAHS students attempt ACT and SAT tests multiple times.  Colleges accept scores from either test.  Many colleges allow students to use their highest score, and many colleges allow students to Super-Score—which means using the highest score of every section of the test.  Please research the colleges you are interested in to see what their policies are regarding the use of ACT/SAT test scores.  Also, please research whether or not the college you are interested in requires the writing portion of the ACT/SAT. 

**High Advanced Placement scores can often earn students college credit.  Please research individual colleges to see their minimum scores required to earn college credit
