The SAT tests are this Saturday, Nov. 2, and the next one is Dec. 7. Now, thanks to the Martha’s Vineyard Youth Leadership Initiative, the ACT test also will be available. Most colleges accept either the SAT or ACT test for admissions. The ACT test has grown in popularity, but until now there has not been a testing site on the Island. Interested students had to travel to Falmouth or farther. On Dec. 14 Vineyard students will be able to take the ACT test at the Charter School.

The youth leadership initiative will offer an ACT training workshop from 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 11.
