Dear Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, Parents & Guardians,
We hope this email finds you doing well! We wanted to remind you that the deadline for the normal registration for the October 3 SAT is September 3. The link for all the test dates and registration deadlines are: https://sat.collegeboard.org/register/sat-us-dates
This exam is extremely important and is a requirement for graduation from SCHS--we are a college prep school and we want to make sure that each of our students atleast has the option to attend college or a university--we want to provide our students with as many options as possible so it is their choice. Any grade can take the exam, but it is recommended for juniors (this winter/spring) and seniors (this fall). For students with extreme financial hardships, please see Ms. Dina Palmisano so she can have you fill out an application for a fee waiver.
We will be administering the PSAT for grades 9-11 which will help to prepare our students for the SAT, and they can become eligible for scholarships early on.
As another reminder from our SCHS Handbook, Page 17:
