MOCK TESTING   

VHES offers both group and individual mock testing to help students assess their content knowledge and improve their test-taking skills. Parents will receive a free diagnostic score report from our testing software. View sample reports: ACT, SAT, SSAT, ISEE, and HSPT.  

Group Testing: 

VHES offers ACT and SAT mock tests in a group setting to simulate the testing environment and accustom students to the format, structure, and timing of the official exam. These baseline test assessments are hosted in the Richmond area at the Richmond Community Church at 11801 Nuckols Road in Glen Allen. For the ACT and SAT, we will review the scores to see which test the student is scoring higher on. Since all colleges and universities accept both tests, it's beneficial to know if your child is scoring higher on the ACT or SAT. We'll use our score concordance chart to make a test recommendation.
