Students, we hope that you are enjoying your summer break! Your counseling staff is currently hard at work renovating the College and Career Center. When it is completed in the fall, you will be able to use the space to research colleges and careers, take career interest inventories, work on college applications, and so much more!
We are looking forward to making this space available to you and plan to have it ready in time for the start of the fall semester! Make sure to stop by to see us when classes resume!
The college board is revising the structure of the SAT. The new SAT will be administered starting in March of 2016.
The new SAT will eliminate the point deduction penalty for incorrect answers (so guessing is encouraged!) and the essay portion is now optional. Please note that many colleges will require this optional essay portion, so you should check the websites of the colleges you are interested in before registering for the SAT.

Some colleges require students to take SAT Subject tests in addition to the traditional SAT test. The SAT subject tests are specific to one content area (e.g. biology, french, etc.). You should plan to take your subject tests by October or November of your senior year in order for colleges to consider the scores for admission. Please note that some colleges may have earlier deadlines, so be sure to look for this information on the school's website.
You can take up to three subject tests on a given date, however, you CANNOT take a subject test on the same day as the SAT main test, so you should plan accordingly. Each test is one hour in duration.

Remember to register early to ensure you can take a test at your desired location. The registration deadline is typically one month before the test date.
Not all subject tests are offered at each administration. See the chart below for when each subject test is offered for this coming school year.
