  • STEP 4: Submit Official Test Scores (Optional)

    Flagler College strives to select students who display strong personal values, excellent citizenship, self-advocacy, and a commitment to the pursuit of knowledge above standardized testing. In light of this, please note the submission of test scores is optional (unless you are homeschooled). If you feel as though you meet our expectations as a driven student with personal integrity, but know your scores do not adequately reflect your abilities, you may opt-out of this section of the application.

    If, on the other hand, you think your standardized test results accurately reflect your potential, test scores from SAT and ACT can be submitted using the following school codes:


    SAT – 5235ACT - 0772
