Colleges use standardized test scores to augment the information they receive from transcripts and recommendation letters, to learn more about each applicant's overall level of achievement, and in some cases to expand assess the students' knowledge in a specific subject area.
Students are responsible for knowing which tests are required by each of their colleges and should work with their counselor during junior year to plan an individual testing timetable.
AIM Educational Services is AISK's official SAT/ACT preparation provider to all students from grades 10-12.

Through AIM's comprehensive and practical approach, AISK's students have raised their scores by hundreds of points, resulting in a class average SAT score of 1950. To register for your SAT course please see the AIM office situated in AISK's front office building, or visit them online at www.aimeduservices.com for further information.
