SAT Day—April 9

Dear Sequoits:

Our ACHS freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will be testing on April 9, 2019. Freshmen students will be taking the PSAT 9, sophomores will be taking the PSAT 10, and juniors will be taking the SAT. The PSAT exams are part of a series of nationally-normed assessments that culminates with the SAT test.  All three exams are state-mandated and state-funded. The SAT is also a graduation requirement for the state of Illinois and an entrance requirement for many colleges/universities. We are confident that this information will provide a complete set of longitudinal data for the district to measure student growth and assess its curriculum. The results from these assessments will also help the district better prepare students for the SAT in the future.

After testing concludes, all freshmen and sophomores will follow a schedule which will include lunch and class meetings.


After the SAT, juniors will be provided a sack lunch if they indicated they wanted one on a prior survey that was completed during English classes.


All students will be released at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Buses will be provided.

In preparation for the exam, we ask that your child get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, and bring the proper materials with him/her that day. Students should bring #2 pencils (not mechanical), a calculator, and a school ID.


The locations of each student’s testing room can be located in the Commons prior to testing day. 

Food, drinks, cell phones/electronic devices, school bags and reading materials will not be allowed in the testing rooms. 

For SENIORS : For this day, students can submit a parent/guardian signed form indicating they will be visiting a college campus, completing volunteer hours, etc. These forms were distributed during English classes. If this scenario applies to your child, please complete the form and return it to the Student Services office ASAP. If a form in not received, it will be considered an unexcused absence. 

If you have any questions about the testing day, please feel free to contact


ACHS Administration. 

Thank you, 
Ms. Aryan Haren
Assistant Principal of C & I
