College Prep Assessments

Different colleges and universities have different requirements. However, most of them require an entrance exam.

  • ACT (American College Test)
  • PSAT (Practice Scholastic Aptitude Test)
  • SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test)
  • AP (Advanced Placement)

For 2022-23:

  • 10th grade students:
    All 10th grade students will have the option of taking the PSAT at no cost. The cost is covered by the FUSD Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Parents/guardians may opt their student out of taking this test.

  • 11th grade students:
    11th grade students may choose to take the PSAT for the cost of $40. 11th grade students can take the PSAT at this administration in order to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program. The College Board does allow for a reduced cost for eligible students and families.

  • 12th grade students:
    12th grade students may choose to take the SAT as part of the “SAT School Day” program which allows for the SAT to be administered at their school during a school day rather than on a Saturday outside of FUSD. The SAT will take approximately four hours to complete and costs $67.
