    The SAT

    The SAT is the most widely used college admission test in the country. SAT scores demonstrate students are prepared for college with necessary skills and knowledge.

    The school-day administration offers these benefits

    • All of our juniors will be automatically registered for the exam. No action is required of families in advance.

    • No cost. Families and students will not be charged for the test, which normally carries a minimum cost of $57.00. The school-day test is free.

    • Students may also send up to four score reports for free. The school-day test permits students to send score reports to as many as four colleges or scholarship programs.

    • Additional pathway to graduation. A qualifying score on the SAT can be used as a graduation pathway. 

    The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) focuses on the knowledge and skills that the best evidence indicates are essential for college and career readiness and success. This test is composed of four sections: Math, Reading, Writing and Language, and Essay.
