PSAT, SAT, and ACT

American Leadership Academy isn't just focused on creating college-ready students, but career-focused individuals. Our college and career prep services support our students in a variety of ways. If you have questions or concerns, visit student services at your school. 

Students should complete any SAT/ACT tests by October or November of their senior year. This allows for enough time for their scores to be received and applicable to be considered for their college admissions. Check the admission requirements of your specific college to see what tests they require. 

American Leadership Academy Queen Creek School Code: 030721
