High School Equivalency/TASC - This course is a comprehensive review for students wanting to receive their High School Equivalency Diploma. Students will prepare to take the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™). This test replaced the GED® test for New York State in 2014.
This is a standardized test owned and published by the College Entrance Examination Board (www.collegeboard.org) and required by many colleges and universities, and more than two million students take the SAT every year. SAT tests are offered seven times a year in the U.S. in October, November, December, January, March, May, and June. The formula: SAT test dates fall on the first Saturday in November, December, May and June; the second Saturday in October and March; and the fourth Saturday in January. Sunday administrations usually occur the day after each Saturday test date for students who cannot test on Saturday due to religious observance.
Contact your high school guidance counselor for additional information on registering for the official SAT test. Most students take the SAT for the first time during the spring of their junior year and a second time during the fall of their senior year of high school.
