The SAT is being redesigned and is set to launch this year with the March 2016 testing date. This new SAT will impact the class of 2017 and beyond. For complete information on the changes to the SAT as well as sample questions and practice tests, please visit: *It is important for current juniors to take the new PSATs in October prior to sitting for the redesigned SAT in the spring*

Students will need to send their SAT scores as part of the college application process. Please note that each time you register for a SAT test date you are offered 4 free score reports to send to prospective colleges. However, your score reports are only available for free within 9 days of your testing date. After the 9 day period there is a fee of $11 for each request made.

You are eligible to register late by paying an additional fee. Late registration by phone or online typically is available until approximately 11 days before the test date.

High school students typically take their SAT for the first time in the spring of their junior year. Many students also take the test a second time, usually in the fall of their senior year.
