Spring SAT Info for Current Juniors

Each spring the School Counseling Department recommends that Junior’s take the SAT and ACT if students are considering attending a two or four year college or university after high school.  If students are still undecided, that is absolutely fine, it’s recommended that students take the tests to help in their decision making process.

This spring, Penn Manor is offering four different opportunities to take the SAT.  We will offer two Saturday SAT tests on March 11th or June 3rd.  In order to register for these tests you will go onto the College Board website, register and pay through the website to secure your seat.

In addition, we are offering a new pilot program, two opportunities to take the SAT during a school day on March 22nd or April 25th.  For each of these test dates there will be a limited number of seats and students will be able to sign up by submitting payment directly to the School Counseling office.  The opportunity to register will be coming soon!

For any of these opportunities, if you qualify for free or reduced lunch, students are eligible to take the SAT for free with a fee waiver.  If you have any questions, please reach out to the school counselor assigned to your student. https://satsuite.collegeboard.org/sat
