College Testing

AP Bulletin for Students and Parents
The 2018-2019 AP Bulletin has important information about the AP Exams, including the policies and procedures for exam administration and security that help ensure a fair and uniform testing experience for all students. On exam day, you’ll be asked to sign a statement on your answer sheet indicating you understand and agree to the policies and procedures in this publication.

Pre ACT
Offered once a year on the Strake Jesuit campus, this optional exam provides our students with the opportunity to practice for the ACT exam.   In addition, the Pre ACT, in conjunction with the PSAT, is a good tool to use in determining which admissions test is right for each student.
