Update on “New” SAT and Our Plan for Juniors

The College Board states presently that in spring of 2016 the SAT will change.  This means that current high school juniors need to make careful plans for negotiating this change.  We have been through this before in 1994 and 2005.   in light of that, we have our juniors on a schedule that we feel will maximize their preparation and opportunity to satisfy college admissions departments. We would encourage those of you with high school junior students to consider a similar schedule.

Since the redesigned SAT will not be released until March of 2016, the current 11th graders will prepare for and take the “old SAT” in December and January of their junior year.  They will be giving the colleges scores from a test the colleges have ample predictive data from.  If they get good scores they may well be finished with admission tests.

If they want better scores, we will prepare them for the ACT and “New” SAT in the spring of their junior year and the fall of their senior year.

We listed the proposed changes in the previous post about the redesigned SAT
