2021-22 Everett High School PSAT and SAT Information

SAT FAQ

  • Who is taking the SAT?

    All juniors are encouraged to take the SAT in the spring and it is offered to 11th graders at no cost through Spring SAT School Day.

    By senior year, students should take the SAT no later than December, depending on admissions deadlines for the colleges/universities or scholarships to which they are applying - many institutions have priority admission deadlines in October or November, with final admission deadlines in January through March. 

    What is the SAT?

    The Scholastic Aptitude Exam (SAT) measures reasoning and critical thinking skills students need to succeed in college or careers.  

    When is the SAT?

    Everett High School is not participating in the Fall 2021 SAT School Day due to conflicts with the PSAT School Day and other state assessments, so will not be offering SAT administration in-school. Students may register for a fall SAT session through College Board and are encouraged to contact their counselor or our Assessment Coordinator for assistance with SAT registration, including fee waivers.
