For many years Zionsville Community Schools has participated in the Midwest Academic Talent Search (MATS) for mathematically and verbally talented third through ninth grade students. Qualifying students are invited to take the SAT or ACT at Grades 7 and 8, the EXPLORE test or the SAT or ACT at Grade 6, and the EXPLORE test at Grades 3-5. ZCS is merely informing you of this opportunity. Participation is strictly voluntary. Students and their parents who are interested should visit the Midwest Academic Talent Search (MATS) website at http://www.ctd.northwestern.edu/numats/.
Students may qualify to register to take the EXPLORE (Grades 3-6), SAT (Grades 7-8 and qualifying Grade 6) or ACT (Grades 7-8, qualifying Grade 6, and Grade 9) in one of several ways. Please see the MATS website to determine if your child qualifies.
If you would like to register to take the EXPLORE, SAT or ACT, please do so online.
