PSAT, SAT, & ACT
These college entrance tests are given ONLY at specified locations on specific dates. When you register, you are given a "homeschool code" to use that ensures that the results are sent to the parent, not to a school. Check with the colleges your child is considering to determine which test they prefer. These tests count as your annual testing for MN homeschool law.

PSAT/NMSQT - usually taken fall of Junior year. High-scoring students may qualify for college scholarships. Very limited test dates. Given ONLY in high schools, and each school chooses one of only 2 possible dates.
