Bellevue School District will offer an opportunity for juniors and seniors to take the SAT during the school day in the 2022-23 school year. We are pleased to be able to offer the SAT during the school day free of charge to ensure access to the exam for all students.

SAT scores are one of several tools that colleges and universities can use to determine a student’s readiness for college work. Although many undergraduate institutions have made SAT and/or ACT exam scores optional, many colleges still consider these scores in their review process and some schools still require exam scores be submitted. SAT scores may also be utilized by students to fulfill an English Language Arts and math assessment requirement for graduation.

The SAT assessments are owned and developed by the College Board. The College Board recommends that students take the PSAT/NMSQT in fall of their junior year. The College Board also recommends that students take the SAT during the spring of their junior year and fall of their senior year.

On Wednesday, October 12, 2022, which is ‘Super Wednesday,’ juniors will have an opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT. Students will be able to use their PSAT scores to identify areas for SAT test preparation using free services from Khan Academy. The school-day SAT for juniors will be scheduled in March of 2023.

The school-day SAT for seniors will be scheduled on ‘Super Wednesday,’ October 12, 2022.

Bellevue School District will continue to host Saturday SAT testing opportunities in service of our students and families, and those in our larger community.
