Spring Testing

When taking the Colorado school day SAT this spring (April 9, 2019), 11th grade students will have the option of taking the SAT with or without the optional essay.  Adding the essay to their SAT registration is a student choice.  The default registration for all students is the SAT without essay.  Students who wish to take the optional essay must register for it in advance; bulk registration for the SAT essay is not available. 


The essay registration window is Jan. 15-Feb. 12, 2019.  This will be the only opportunity for students who wish to take the optional essay to add it to their April school day test registration.  Students may add the essay to their registration through their online College Board account or by calling the College Board.  We will also be visiting 11thgrade English classrooms to assist students in the process.  Schools will not receive extra essay materials for test day changes, therefore, please be sure students register during the window.

Additional Information:
