SAT/ACT SAT/ACT
11/25/2020

MCPS is moving forward with the December 5 SAT and December 12 ACT administration at selected high school test centers. However, based on changing health and safety guidelines and prioritizing the health and safety of students and staff, capacity will be reduced at each test center. Unfortunately, this may result in some students being unregistered for the December 5 SAT by College Board or for the December 12 test by ACT. When unregistering students, these organizations use their own processes for determining which students are cancelled, which is typically based on prioritizing seniors. College Board or ACT will contact students directly via email if there is a change to their registration status, as this is not managed by MCPS. MCPS will keep you updated on future testing opportunities in early 2021.
