School Day SAT 2021

The Basics

All LISD juniors will take the SAT with Essay FREE of charge on Wednesday, March 3, 2021 during the school day.  No registration is necessary.  Testing will begin at 8:15am.  Masks must be worn at all times during the test. 

Students need to bring two, number two pencils and a calculator if they wish to use one on the exam. See www.sat.org for a complete list of acceptable calculators. 

Lunch will not be served until after the exam, so students are encouraged to bring a small snack. 

**VIRTUAL STUDENTS** - Those juniors that are virtual MUST come to school on this day to test IF they want to take advantage of this opportunity.  College Board does NOT offer a remote option for SAT testing.  The SAT is NOT required to recieve a high school diploma. 

The Benefits

  • Testing on a school day doesn't interfere with weekend work/family obligations.
  • More students are able to show up and take the SAT when it is offered at their school.
  • Stress is lower because students test in a familiar location with staff they know.
  • All students who take the SAT can send their scores to as many as four colleges for free.

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD)

Some students with documented disabilities are eligible to test with accommodations on the SAT, however, students must be approved to do so by College Board.  Contact our campus SSD coordinator, Mr. Sheppard, at 219-1162, to begin the accommodations approval process.  The last day to submit testing accommodations requests for the March 3rd School Day SAT will be Friday, January 15, 2021.
