Test Information

In 2013/2014, Maryland implemented new, higher standards for student learning in all schools across the state.  The Maryland College and Career Ready Standards are based on the Common Core State Standards, which provide students with the relevant, real-world knowledge and skills needed for success.

In 2014/2015, new state-wide testing from the Partnership for Assessments of Readiness for College and Careers (PARACC) will be administered and will soon replace current statewide tests, including the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) which is offered to students in grades 3-8.

Other academic testing offered by SRHS includes:

High School Assessments (HSA), a requirement for graduation from high school

Preliminary Scholastic Achievement Test (PSAT), offered to undergraduate students for determination of AP placement and entry in the National Merit Scholarship competition

Scholastic Achievement Test (SAT), for college bound students

American College Test (ACT), also for college bound students, and an alternative to the SAT

Advanced Placement Tests (AP), to earn college-level course credit for students currently enrolled in AP level classes.

As well as HSA, PSAT and SAT Prep classes, both in school and on weekends.  Additional practice information is available on-line through the sponsors of the SAT and ACT programs.
