SAT measures the knowledge and skills that research shows are essential for college and career readiness and success. The assessment is composed of Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, Math, and an optional essay test. 

SAT State Testing
A state-funded SAT assessment will be administered to all high school juniors on Tuesday, April 14, 2020. This in-school administration will include the essay. Students who have an extended time accommodation per their IEP or 504 Plan may be required to test over 2 consecutive days, depending on the type of accommodation. 

All 11th grade students must take the SAT to receive a regular high school diploma, unless the student is eligible to take the alternative assessment or otherwise exempt from testing. For more detailed information about the Illinois state requirements, you can view Illinois Public Act 100-0222.

Township High School District 214 offers the SAT on many Saturday dates throughout the high schools in our district. Although optional, the SAT or the ACT is required for admission by many post-secondary institutions. SAT Subject Tests are offered to aid college placement in specific subject areas.  Students may choose from 20 SAT subject tests.

If your student requires accommodations for testing under an IEP or 504 plan, contact the special education department in your school at the beginning of the school year.
