    While the courses students take and the grades students receive are generally the most important criteria for college admission, the test results of the ACT® (administered by ACT, Inc.) or the SAT (administered by College Board) are also considered. Refer to the admission guidelines for each college or university for details.

    ETHS is a testing center for the ACT and SAT, and both tests are offered on certain Saturdays throughout the year. This schedule allows students to repeat either or both tests in their junior or senior year, if necessary.
