A Message from College Board:  In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19) and guidance from public health organizations, the College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020, SAT® administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled March 28) are also canceled. The College Board will provide refunds to all students who are registered for May, whose March test centers were closed, or who do not receive March scores due to an irregularity.

Our top priority is the health and safety of students and educators.

The College Board will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as feasible in place of canceled administrations. The College Board has not yet canceled the June 6, 2020 SAT administration and will continue to assess its status.

What is the SAT/ACT Test?

The SAT and ACT are both entrance exams used by most college and universities to make admission decisions.  The purpose is to measure a high school student's readiness for college.  Typically, the higher the score, the more options for attending and paying for college will be available to you.
