Savannah Adams – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The deadline for Mustangs to sign-up to take the Post-Secondary Educational Readiness Test (PERT), originally set for this Friday, has been extended to Feb. 27

Mustangs can register to take the PERT on either Tuesday, Mar. 7 or Wednesday, Mar. 8.

The test will be given after school in the Media Center.

The PERT is a multi-section test.  If Mustangs chose to take all sections, it could take up to three hours to complete.

In addition to passing the PERT, Mustangs interested in taking Dual Enrollment courses through the State College of Florida (SCF) or the University of South Florida (USF) are required to meet an initial Grade Point Average (GPA) as well as course prerequisite requirements.

These requirements include certain test scores either obtained by the SAT, American College Testing (ACT), or PERT.
