IWA begins preparing students for success on standardized tests in freshmen year. All freshmen take the PSAT 8/9 and all sophomores and juniors take the PSAT each year. Students are advised to take the SAT/ACT for the first time in the spring of their junior year and retest in the summer or fall of their senior year to improve their score, if needed. Most colleges will accept scores through the December exam of the senior year. Students are responsible for submitting their official SAT and/or ACT scores to the colleges in their application list.
