GSSM’s School Code for the SAT and ACT is 410997

To register for the tests:

  • College Board (for the SAT Test and the SAT Subject Tests)
  • ACT (for the American College Test)

SAT and SAT Subject Tests

The SAT includes sections on Evidenced Based Reading and Writing in addition to Mathematics. Individual section scores range from 200 to 800.

SAT Subject Tests are required by some selective colleges for admission. Students should check the admissions requirements for each college to which they are applying to determine which tests may be required. The ideal time to take the SAT Subject Tests is in May or June of the junior year, as they are not offered again until August.

ACT

With few exceptions, all colleges will accept both the SAT and ACT for admission. The ACT includes sections in English, math, reading, science and an optional Essay (which we encourage students to take.) Test dates do not conflict with the SAT dates, and for the past few years, GSSM has provided the ACT in spring to juniors as required by the State of South Carolina.
