March 25, 2020 | SAT School Day has been cancelled for Juniors. Some of the colleges you will be applying to may waive the SAT, but others (usually more competitive ones) feel that you will have enough time to take the SAT before the admissions deadlines next year. The SAT is offered on Saturdays, nearly every month. You will all be receiving SAT fee waivers for 2 tests. We will talk more about this later in the school year. DO NOT WORRY! Just continue to study on Khan Academy (satpractice.org). Questions?, e-mail us!
