Given by the College Board, the SAT is a three-hour, forty-five-minute test that measures verbal and mathematical reasoning students need for success in US colleges and universities. Students will receive three scores: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (800 points), Mathematics (800 points), and Combined (1600 points).
The majority of US schools accept the SAT (or the ACT, a similar test described below) as part of the application process. Most students begin taking SATs during 11th grade and, on average, will take the test two or three times. A list of, approximately 1000, schools that are testing optional or testing blind can be found at https://fairtest.org.
SATs are offered on specific Saturdays at high schools throughout the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. (Rochambeau is not an SAT test site.) Rochambeau students also have the opportunity in the Spring and Fall to take the SAT at Rochambeau through the SAT School Day program.
