All 11h grade students in the state of Delaware will be taking the SAT on this date, MOT Charter students will test during school hours.  Juniors have both College Board and Naviance accounts that they can use for math and reading practice.  Practice of 20 hours or more is associated with score gains of more than 100 points. The College Board will send a student’s SAT scores to up to four different colleges for free.  Families should discuss now which schools they would like to send their scores to.  A list of colleges and the codes associated with them can be found below.  Sending your score to a college now does not commit your child to applying to that college in their senior year.

What is the SAT and why is it important?

Created by the College Board, the SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The idea (in theory, at least) is to provide colleges with one common criterion that can be used to compare all applicants. However, it is just one factor in the admissions decision. Schools also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, interviews, and personal essays. The weight placed on SAT scores varies from school to school.

Students can learn more about and practice for the upcoming test by visiting collegeboard.org or khanacademy.org. Please contact the Guidance office if you have any questions.
