The SAT is one of two widely-recognized college entrance exams. We will be administering the SAT here at school on Tuesday, April 25 for interested juniors. While not all colleges require SAT or ACT scores, and in fact many remain "test-optional" following COVID, the recommendation is generally for any college-bound student to take the SAT during the spring of their junior year in the event that a college they apply to requires a score and/or so that a strong score can be used to strengthen the application even if not required by the college.
If you are interested in having your junior take the SAT at school, please call or email Mrs. Slesinsky with your child’s name so a test book can be ordered. The cost for the test is $60, although students who meet the criteria set by the College Board may be given a fee waiver. Checks should be made payable to “Harpursville Central School” and dropped off or mailed to the Guidance Office. The deadline for ordering tests and submitting payment or requesting a fee waiver is March 17.
