PSAT March 21, 2017

Dear Aviation High School Families,

The new year kicks off SAT (and PSAT) Prep Season! All of our juniors will take the SAT on Wednesday, March 21st, right here at Aviation High School. Our sophomores will take the PSAT on that day. This administration of the exams is free for the students. The essay portion of the SAT will not be available on that day.

The OFFICIAL SAT Practice on Khan Academy

The College Board, which is the creator of the SAT/PSAT has partnered with Khan Academy to create, for the first time, an official study guide for the SAT/PSAT. This means that the best way for students to prepare for the SAT/PSAT is for students to go online and study at Khan Academy, for free! We would like all families to be aware of this and to please share this information with your children. Attached you will find a flyer about the Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy. We will also distribute these flyers to your children, so please ask them about it. Finally, Ms. DiGiorgio, our College and Career Counselor, is visiting as many classes as she can to spread the word.

The College Board is trying to make the SAT more relevant and more accessible to all students. This free sponsored training program is the first time that the College Board has created a road map to getting a higher score on the SAT. Please help our students take advantage of it.

Interesting fact about the new SAT: All of the evidenced based reading documents will be focused on science, global studies or US history.
