The SAT Subject tests are generally required by only a small number of the more selective colleges, but students should check the requirements of each college they are investigating to see if the Subject Tests are necessary and, if so, which individual tests are required. If the junior needs to take these tests, consider taking the SAT Subject Tests in May or June, no later than junior year as the tests will not be offered again until October. NOTE: Some colleges that require the SAT Subject Tests for Early Decision applicants will not accept testing after the October date.
Virtually all colleges will accept the ACT in place of the SAT; therefore, we encourage Woodward students to take both tests and evaluate which is your best testing instrument.

The HOPE Scholarship Program is a merit-based scholarship program with specific academic and grade point average eligibility requirements for Georgia students who will attend college within the state of Georgia. A student who graduates from an eligible high school with a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale in all attempted coursework in English, mathematics, science, social science, and world languages as calculated by the Georgia Student Finance Commission will be considered for an award. Regardless of the curriculum track, grades in coursework that is classified as "Advanced Placement" will be weighted by the Commission when calculating the grade point average for HOPE Scholarship eligibility, but with no additional weight to a 4.0. Grades for Woodward Academy Honors or Enriched Prep courses will not be weighted in these calculations.

The Rutgers University Physician Assistant Program enhances the delivery of humanistic patient care and advances the PA profession through a dynamic blend of educational programs, research, and service. Expertly crafted curricula and thoughtful mentorship of students develop collaborative, caring and competent healthcare providers.
The Rutgers Physician Assistant Program confers a Master of Science degree upon completion of 33 months of didactic and clinical education.
During the didactic phase of the Program, students study the basic sciences (anatomy, physiology, pathology, etc.) which provide a foundation for the clinical sciences (clinical medicine, physical diagnosis, etc.) During the clinical phase, we offer extensive training, including rotations in inpatient medicine, ambulatory care, surgery, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, emergency medicine, psychiatry, intensive care medicine, and a medical sub-specialty (cardiology, gastroenterology, HIV/AIDS, or geriatrics). During the final semester, students may choose an elective rotation from a wide variety of disciplines such as cardiology, infectious disease, dermatology, gastroenterology, and surgical subspecialties or arrange a rotation at a site of their choosing either within the US or abroad.
We believe our 33 month curriculum affords the best opportunity for educating a physician assistant. Our graduates consistently achieve high pass rates on the PA National Certifying Examination (PANCE) with scores that place them in or above the 97th percentile nationwide.
The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Rutgers University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Rutgers University. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.
Our students are notably well-prepared as they graduate and progress to each new challenge. They begin college with qualities of character and mind that few other freshmen possess—civility, endurance, social agility, and self-reliance. These qualities ensure success in college and a well-laid path for life.
Yes, we agree that practice is a good idea, but that is why we give the PSAT each year. A serious scrutiny of the PSAT results each year can yield weaknesses to work on. For additional practice, use College Board's The Official SAT Study Guide.
