We hope this message finds you well and that you are successfully navigating this unexpected new norm. This email is to give you information about the SAT that was scheduled for April 14. The state has decided to cancel that test administration, with the hope of rescheduling it in the fall. There is no reschedule date determined at this time, but that information will be shared with you as soon as we are made aware of it. Just like the April administration would have been, a fall test will take place on a school day and will be funded by the state and therefore given at no cost to you.
We understand that some of you may not want to wait until fall of your senior year to take a standardized test, as you will be applying to colleges early in the fall that may need test scores. At this time, the College Board is still offering test dates for you at your expense. Those test dates are:
June 6, 2020 with a registration deadline of May 8
The regular registration cost is $49.50 without essay and $64.50 with essay. Late registrations cost an extra $30.
The tests are being offered at Illinois Central College at the East Peoria campus. Students should go to collegeboard.org to register for a test date.The ACT is another option if you want to test on your own. ACT test dates are:
June 13, 2020 with a registration deadline of May 8
The regular registration cost is $52 with no writing portion and $68 with the writing portion. Late registrations cost an extra $30. The tests are being offered at Illinois Central College in East Peoria as well as at Bradley University, Peoria High School, and Richwoods High School in Peoria. Students should go to actstudent.org to register.Both testing websites given above have test prep information, including full length practice tests, and Khan Academy is also a great option for test prep. You should already have login information for Khan Academy.
Again, more information will be shared with you as it is made available to us. In the meantime, if you have testing questions, you may direct them to Mrs. Bohanan at email@example.com. Always feel free to reach out to your counselors during this time if you have questions related to academics, college/career, or if you are experiencing social-emotional issues. We are thinking about all of you and we will get through this together.
We hope to see you soon!
