Common Core Testing

"The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy."

AP Testing

"Taken each May by students all over the world, the AP Exam is the final step you take after a year of hard work in an AP class. These standardized exams are designed to measure how well you’ve mastered the content and skills of the course — a successful score could even earn you credit and advanced placement in college." From the AP website.

At Santa Teresa High School, it is expected that all students taking an AP course also take the exam since taking the exam can boost your chances of gaining college admission.  Students who score a 3 or higher on the exam earn college credit for that course.

SAT/ACT Testing

The SAT and ACT are two standardized exams that colleges use in combination with the student's transcript and application to determine a student's eligibility.  Most colleges and universities accept both the SAT and the ACT.  To determine if you should take the SAT, ACT, or both, you should check with the college or university you are applying to.


"The SAT and SAT Subject Tests are a suite of tools designed to assess your academic readiness for college. These exams provide a path to opportunities, financial support and scholarships, in a way that's fair to all students. The SAT and SAT Subject Tests keep pace with what colleges are looking for today, measuring the skills required for success in the 21st century." From the SAT.com website.

"The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program cosponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT®. It also gives you a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.

The PSAT/NMSQT measures:

  • Critical reading skills
