Testing, College Resources:

 

Most colleges like  Chattahoochee Valley Community College, Troy State University, Columbus Technical College and Columbus State Univeristy offers SAT testing for your child before they can enter college. Some of these schools like TSU offer college courses for homeschooling students in the 10th grade. They have to maintain a certain average and this goes towards their college credits, so by 12th grade they would have completed 2 years of college along with homeschooling.

 

Some private Christian Schools such as Paccelli Private School offer testing as well. You have to call and find out when it is and there is a fee associated with it.
