    Maryland Independent Schools - Admission Testing and the Surging Test Optional Movement

    In response to the pandemic, colleges have radically adjusted their admission testing policies. Over 95% of selective colleges did not require test scores for the class of 2021, and it's likely that these policies will continue well into the future.

    Please join the experts at Compass Education Group and independent school families across Maryland to discuss the range of implications, motives, and trends related to the complex and layered test optional movement. Best practices for exam selection (SAT or ACT), preparation, and timing will be reviewed as well.
