Juniors in Delaware's public schools can now register to take the SAT college readiness exam for free during the school day on April 17.
Funded by the state as part of Delaware's $119 million federal Race to the Top grant, the program promotes a school culture that encourages more students to pursue education after high school. The state began this program in 2011, and this year, more students across the state entered their senior year of high school with a key college admission credential.
Registering for the SAT also enables students to participate in the College Board's Student Search Service, through which students can let colleges, universities and scholarship programs know they are interested in hearing from them. Students participating in the Student Search Service also have the opportunity to receive educational and financial aid information from colleges, universities and scholarship programs.
This year SAT School Day will be administered to all public school students in the states of Delaware and Idaho, as well as in school districts across 10 states (Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington) and Washington, D.C. Students can register online at sat.collegeboard.org/schoolday/delaware through April 3.
