SAT Guide

  • The SAT will be given to all 11th grade classes on April 9, 2024.  The SAT will be administered digitally.  All students will need to bring their Chromebooks. Students need to check in to their assigned classroom by 8:30 a.m. No one will be admitted to a room once testing has begun. If a student arrives late, they will be directed to the late room, if time permits.  

    This week, students completed the Digital Readiness Check in their English class. Students were provided their log in info to Bluebook, and the in-app practice tests. Students have access to full-length practice tests. There is no limit on the number of times a student can take any practice test.

    During testing time, students should not use any prohibited devices. Students will be asked to turn off cell phones and put them away in a bag or backpack. If an emergency arises, please contact your House Assistant to contact your student during testing time.

    IMPORTANT MESSAGE: The College Board has strict guidelines regarding the use of prohibited devices DURING testing time.  If a student is using any of the prohibited items during testing time regardless of location (on the way to the restroom), their scores will be canceled.  The following materials are prohibited: cell phones must be turned off and put away in a bag or backpack, airPods, headphones, alarm watches, protractors, compasses, rulers, stencils, dictionaries (including those used to translate English to another language) or other books, pamphlets, papers of any kind, highlighters, colored pens or pencils, or listening, recording, copying, or photographic devices, and other aids.

    You may bring bottled water only, and light snacks. You will be directed to remove them from your backpack and placed underneath your desk.
