Wednesday, October 14, 2015, during school hours, all seniors (by credit) will take the SAT college entry test for free during the school day. All 9th, 10th, 11th graders will take the PSAT on this day also. Current 10th and 11th graders will be signed up in masses by the district. All 9th graders will register the morning of the test. The Kent School District is paying the fee for all eligible students. More information will be sent to students via their school email accounts, through their English teachers, and through advisory classes.The KSD goal of successfully preparing all students for college and careers starts now! Seniors will be signing up for the test in their Advisory classes in September, and can choose to send their SAT results to up to three colleges of choice. The SAT (or ACT) is required for college admissions. Research shows that students who take the PSAT do better on the SAT. We want to make all possible opportunities available for our students as having a college degree can triple future earnings. Attending even some college can double hourly wages.
