SAT School Day

2021-2022

SAT School Day for registered 12th graders on Wednesday, October 13th 

Sign-up Required by September 8th

On Wednesday, October 13th, LBSS seniors will have the opportunity to take the SAT School Day. FCPS will cover the cost for any 12th grade student to take this test. However, students must register by September 8th  as we cannot accept walk-ups on test day for the SAT School Day. The essay option and subject area tests are not available during SAT School Day and scores will be released on or around November 3. Students will receive their testing locations in early October.

Registration for seniors for SAT School Day

Your student will need to use their @fcpsschools.net email account to access and complete this form.  Families will not be able to access the form using a personal Gmail account. After logging out of all personal Gmail accounts, including apps that use your personal Gmail accounts for access, if you are still having difficulty accessing the form, try accessing the form from the student’s FCPS-issued computer and from a non-Google search engine, such as Internet Explorer.

Requesting a Graphing Calculator

If your student needs to borrow a graphing calculator for testing, they should complete this form and turn it in to their math teacher to receive a calculator.

Please make requests by Friday, October 8. College Board does not permit the school or proctors to lend calculators on test day.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Jennifer Bury, LBSS Assessment Coordinator.

The SAT Student Guide has information about testing, test-taking tips, and a practice test. 

Do I have to register to take this test with College Board?

Students do not need to register on College Board for the SAT School Day.

However, students do need to register with the school by completing the Intent to Participate form by September 8. 

We cannot accept walk-up or late registrations.

How long is the test?

The SAT School Day test is 4 hours and 15 minutes long (students with College Board-approved extended time will test longer). Students testing with standard time will be done around 1:00PM. Students testing with 50% extended time will be done around 3:00PM.

What should my student bring to school for the SAT School Day test?

Please note: We will not lend pencils or calculators to students due to health concerns.

  • Face mask; no students will be permitted without one.
  • Multiple #2 pencils; no mechanical pencils. 
  • Picture ID. Here is a list of acceptable ID from College Board. Please note that last year’s LBSS school ID with picture is fine as well.
  • SAT approved calculator. If your student needs to borrow one, please let me know as we have a few in the testing office. Calculators cannot be borrowed on the day of the test.
  • Snacks and water.
  • Please do not bring backpacks. The above items should be placed in a clear Ziploc-like bag like you would for Saturday SAT testing.

What is prohibited from testing?

You may NOT bring any electronic “smart” device such as a cell phone, laptop, or wearable technology like a Smart Watch or Fitbit. Please leave these items in your car or at home.

Is food allowed?

Fairfax County will be providing a grab and go breakfast and lunch option for all students. Snacks are allowed to be eaten during scheduled breaks. We request that snacks are peanut-free and carried in a clear Ziplock bag.

How can my student prepare for the SAT School Day?

The SAT Student Guide, which includes a practice test, is linked above.  The College Board has also partnered with Khan Academy to provide online practice: Official SAT® Practice. Please also visit the SAT School Day Terms and Conditions. You can find more practice sites linked at the bottom of the infographic.

How can my student apply for testing accommodations for the SAT?

The College Board’s deadline for SAT accommodation requests was August 10th, 2021.  Any student who has College Board approved accommodations will receive the appropriate accommodations on test day.  Please be aware that students with an extended time accommodation will finish testing later.  Additionally, students testing with MP3 audio will test over 2 days. For questions about the College Board accommodation request process, please contact our Services for Students with Disabilities Coordinator, Amy Haughton.

When will my student receive SAT School Day scores?

Scores should be available online to students through their free College Board accounts around November 3, 2021. Students can view scores via College Board. Students who do not currently have a College Board account will need to create one to view scores.  Students should use their personal email (not fcpsschools.net accounts) to create their CB account.
