The globally recognized college entrance exam — the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) — has been provided free of charge to all public school high school Juniors in Idaho since 2012. In order to prepare, students will also receive a free subscription to The Official SAT Online Course™, available through your school. Some SAT exams are administered during the school day while some are offered on selected Saturdays. Please check the district assessment calendar for the most current dates.
The SAT comprises two exams - Evidence-based Reading and Writing and Mathematics as well as an essay. Together, they represent a suite of tools designed to assess a student's academic readiness for college. These exams provide a path to opportunities, financial support, and scholarships, in a way that's fair...while identifying what colleges are looking for today, measuring the skills required for success in the 21st century.
