The SAT fulfills one of many requirements for admission to colleges that request standardized test scores from their applicants.
While there are a growing number of high quality institutions adopting versions of test-optional policies, this should not encourage anyone to disregard the SAT. It is still a dimension of college admissions that can help earn admission for the majority of institutions and can determine merit scholarship eligibility. The SAT is administered seven times a year. For boarding students, we provide transportation to designated local testing centers on designated test dates throughout the year. Students should consult with the Director of College Counseling prior to registering for any test where transportation is needed from St. Timothy’s.
