Carnegie Prep’s practice SATs and ACTs are open to any student who wants to take a practice test in a simulated testing environment. For those who register, there’s a test scheduled from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 26 at the Depot Youth Center.
— an announcement from the Depot, with additional information from the Carnegie Prep website.
- Fun fact: When Andrew Carnegie spent a few summers in Darien about 120 years ago, he’d stop at the Noroton Heights station, get out of his private train car and get in a waiting horse and carriage. About where the Depot is now. (We have no idea whether or not Carnegie Prep has a connection to Andrew Carnegie, but that’s the Depot’s.)
The timed test administrations include all sections of the test (SAT: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and Math; ACT: English, Math, Reading, Science), plus the the optional essay. Students who do not wish to take the essay will be dismissed after the multiple-choice section.
Students should plan to arrive 15 minutes early with pencils, a calculator, and a cold drink.
Students and parents will be emailed a score report within two business days of the practice test.
Students may request a private tutor to go over their practice test results.
Since 1984, Carnegie Prep has offered academic support for students and families in
Fairfield and Westchester Counties. Founded in Greenwich, CT, Carnegie Prep prepares students to meet the challenges of standardized testing, academic classes, and college admission, offering resources for students at all levels.
