Optional SAT for PVHS Seniors

Attention PVHS Seniors and family members:

On Wednesday, September 23rd PVHS will be offering an optional SAT test for seniors only. Due to the closure of school last March, the Colorado Department of Education cancelled the SAT scheduled last April. Students have the option to take the SAT at no cost on September 23rd. For students seeking to attend higher education after graduation, the Colorado Department of Higher Education has waived SAT scores in college and university admissions. “Students who are graduating from high school in 2021 will not be required to submit their SAT or ACT test scores as part of the college admission process to state four-year colleges and universities in Colorado. Some private colleges and universities in Colorado are already “test optional” – these include: Colorado College; Regis University; and University of Denver. Colorado community, junior, and area technical colleges are open admission and do not require test scores as part of the admission process.” 

More information can be found on CDE’s website or by using this link. SAT Information  If you are planning to attend college outside of Colorado, please refer to your specific school’s admissions requirements or see your counselor. In addition to this, the state has also waived the graduation requirements for seniors graduating in spring 2021, including a qualifying score on the SAT English and Math sections. Please note, as of this past May the NCAA is still requiring a SAT or ACT score for eligibility purposes. This may be subject to change as the situation evolves. NCAA COVID-19 Information

In order to comply with all 27J and CDPHE safety protocols and to ensure the safety of students and staff on test day, students must RSVP if they choose to take the SAT on Wednesday, September 23rd. PVHS needs to know who will be testing that day in order to group testing students and proctors. Students who chose virtual learning as their option for this year will have the opportunity to take the test in building. PVHS senior students, you MUST RSVP for the September 23rd optional SAT by Friday, August 21st. Please use the “Optional Fall SAT Test RSVP” Google Form included in this message to register.
