ACT, SAT exams offered for Craig students in coming months

Students needing to take the ACT and SAT exams can register online at www.actstudent.org for the ACT and www.collegeboard.org for the SAT. Both sites also provide information for those taking the tests, including necessary supplies, documentation and other details.
