• SAT Information and Resources

    While high school grades are a very useful indicator of how students will perform in college, there is great variation in grading standards and course rigor within and across high schools.  More than 80 years ago, the College Board created the first standardized college entrance test to help colleges and universities identify students who could succeed at their institutions and to connect students with educational opportunities beyond high school.

    Today, the SAT is the benchmark standardized assessment of the critical reading, mathematical reasoning, and writing skills students have developed over time and that they need to be successful in college and career.  Each year, more than two million students take the SAT.  Nearly every college in America uses the test as a common and objective scale for evaluating a student's college readiness.
