Leveling the Playing Field
The Winston School is a college preparatory school which is committed to making sure students are equipped to enter the college or university of their choice. Part of this process is ensuring that their learning differences are appropriately accommodated during the college admission testing process.
The Winston School is approved to offer accommodated testing for our students and those in the greater community who can furnish the required documentation to qualify for accommodations on the SAT and/or ACT.
Accommodations We Provide:
- Multi-day testing
- Extended time
- MP3 audio reader
- Breaks as needed
- Assistive technology
Once a student is approved for Accommodations by College Board or ACT TAA Testing, families should contact the Director of College Counseling no later than 2 weeks from testing to reserve a time and date that best fits with the student's availability.
- There is no additional cost for students to request or be approved for testing accommodations.
- Families should always indicate special testing when registering for a testing date.
- Students at the Winston School receive guidance and support through the accommodation request process and the required documentation to submit to CollegeBoard or ACT.
- If a student is not a Winston student, the accommodation request is best handled by the student's own school via learning support services, etc. Winston will still be able to provide testing services to students from any school once they receive accommodation approval.
