Standardized Testing Requirement
PHEA requires standardized testing for students in high school. The parents may choose any of the national tests (eg: Stanford, Iowa, SAT, ACT) to meet this requirement. We no longer offer testing, as BJU Press has opened a test center that provides more services at a lower cost than we are able to. We strongly recommend that your student take the PSAT in 9th or 10th grade. The 11th grade PSAT is the qualifier test for the National Merit Scholarship. We encourage you to have your student take the SAT or ACT in their junior and senior year. If the parent feels that the junior year SAT or ACT scores are adequate, they may waive testing during the senior year. We must have SAT or ACT scores from previous years in order to waive the senior year testing.
PLEASE USE PHEA'S CODE (410293) WHEN REGISTERING FOR THE PSAT, SAT OR ACT.
Most home school students take the College Board tests for college admissions. You can register for the SAT, ACT and PSAT as well as the AP exams online at www.collegeboard.com. When registering you must provide a high school code. The high school code for PHEA is 410293.
