Dear Academic Approach Families and Colleagues:

College Board announced today that they are canceling the June SAT test date. Instead, they are adding a September test date, meaning this year’s juniors will have an opportunity to take the SAT every month this fall from August through December. The actual September date has not yet been released.

SAT Test Details
Students registered for the June SAT and juniors who haven’t yet had an opportunity to take the SAT will get access to early registration for the August, September, and October administrations. Registration for all others will open in May. In addition, schools that were scheduled to take the April SAT will be offered an additional test date in the fall.

ACT Test Details
Meanwhile, the June and July ACT test dates remain scheduled. ACT has indicated that they will be offering late summer/early fall dates to make up for April’s cancelation. If they cancel June or July, there will be an even greater need for these make-up dates.

At-Home Testing
Both ACT and the College Board have announced that should schools not re-open in the fall, they will offer an at-home testing option. We’ll provide more information on these updates as they become available.

Key Takeaway
Students in the class of 2021 can best prepare for college entrance exams–and develop essential college readiness skills–by continuing their academic progress. The most important factor in building college readiness is continuous time spent on academic work at the right level of rigor.

Despite current delays and pauses, let’s maintain academic progress and not lose sight of our collective goal: consistent academic growth.

Be well,
