JUNIORS: SAT Information

Juniors,

It is time to start thinking about taking the SAT if you have not already. This year, a test is being offered in August. The registration deadline for the August 25th test is July 27th. Late registration deadline is August 15th.

We STRONGLY urge you to take the test on August, 25th if you’ve already taken the test and want to take it a second time to improve your score or if you will taking it for the first time. Deadlines to apply to colleges and universities for Early Action, Early Decision or Priority status typically are in early November and December. If you wait for the next available test in October, 2018, your scores may not reach the college/university by the deadline. We also encourage you to register for the August test soon as seats fill up quickly.

If you need a fee waiver, we encourage you to see Sheree in the College and Career Center before June 22nd. After June 22nd you can get one from Ken Pimental or Jill Reents in the office.

There is another advantage to taking the SAT in August. The SAT test can satisfy the essential skills graduation requirement in reading, writing and math if you earn certain scores. If you have not passed any or all of the essential skills by the end of this year, consider taking the SAT in August. Why not start your senior year with a graduation requirement already satisfied?
