Standardized Testing (Including AP Tests)

In order to optimize the student experience at SEGL, we recommend that students schedule SAT and ACT standardized testing BEFORE or AFTER their semester with us. We have worked to arrange our semester start/end dates and break dates so that students may take these tests while at home.

SEGL does not register students for the SAT or ACT tests, but does register students for and facilitate the PSAT (Fall) and AP exams (Spring).

If a student needs to take the SAT or ACT while at SEGL, please let SEGL's Academic Dean, Christian Starling (, know as soon as possible.
