MHS to offer SAT SCHOOL DAY on Wednesday, March 24, 2021
JUNIORS! Given all the uncertainty about college testing and with Covid-19 safety protocols in mind, the March 13th SAT and SAT Subject Tests scheduled at Medfield High School have been cancelled.
MHS will be offering an SAT School Day Test for all Medfield High School juniors on Wednesday, March 24th, 2021. Registration for the SAT will open up on January 6th. You can visit https://aptsusa.com/medfield/ to register and pay for the test.
Here are some facts about SAT School Day:
You will pay & register to take the exam through AP TEST SERVICES, not through College Board.
If you are looking for a refund or to switch payment from the March 13th SAT to another SAT you need to contact College Board directly at 866-630-9305.
Only the SAT with essay or SAT no essay are offered on SAT School Day. College Board prohibits subject tests on SAT School Day.
If you have an SSD number and receive testing accommodations, you will be able to test on SAT School Day.
If you were NOT registered for the March SAT in Medfield you can still take the test. Registration information will be available later this week.
The deadline to register for SAT School Day here in Medfield will be February 19th, 2021.
The district will do a deep clean on the Tuesday night prior to the test and again on Wednesday after testing.
Students will be split up on test day by cohort. More information will be provided as we get closer to March 24th.
If financial need is an issue, please reach out to your child’s guidance counselor.
We are excited to offer the SAT to all Medfield juniors! If you have any questions about the SAT Test Day protocols, please contact your guidance counselor at 508-359-2482.
