PSAT • SAT • ACT TESTING INFORMATION
Dear Kehillah Families,
We hope this note finds you and your families well. It has been such a pleasure to see the interior of our building shed some of its Covid-enforced setup as we work toward a full return of students in August.
Like most businesses during Covid, the standardized testing companies had to examine their processes that were not working and institute new procedures. The lack of available testing slots in the Bay Area was one of the topmost challenges. As a solution, both the College Board and ACT are allowing schools to administer an October school day test for seniors only. Kehillah will also administer the PSAT for 10th and 11th graders on the same day as the SAT. As in the years prior to Covid, the PSAT for juniors is the first step in qualifying for a National Merit Scholarship and also a valuable opportunity for students to take a practice standardized test.
The school day test dates are below. REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS Friday, August 20, 2021.
- SAT for seniors – Wed, Oct 13, 8:30 AM
- PSAT for sophomores and juniors – Wed, Oct 13, 8:30 AM
- ACT for seniors – Tues, Oct 19, 8:30 AM
Note for students with accommodations – The SAT and ACT are administered by two different organizations and therefore require separate accommodation requests. For accommodation and all other questions, contact Rachel Paley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
