SAT Exam

Tuesday, April 14, 2020

St. Dom’s will be administering the SAT exam during the school day, on Tuesday, April 14. We recommend that all juniors take the exam on this date, allowing for a secondary test date before the end of 11th grade if a student desires to improve his/her score.

The SAT testing fee for the 2019-20 school year is $49.50 without the essay and $64.50 for the SAT with Essay. Please check with the colleges to which you think you will be applying to inquire if they require the essay. PrepScholar has information to consider when deciding on whether you should include the SAT essay on exam day.

In order to meet the test ordering deadline, the test fee must be paid to St. Dom’s by January 31.

For more information about the exam, contact Academic and Curriculum Advisor, Joline Girouard at joline.girouard@portlanddiocese.org or 207-782-6911.
