Preparing for the SATs

SAT School Day is a citywide campaign to encourage students taking the SAT test. All 11th-grade students in NYC public schools will take the SAT at their school during a regular school day for free. This is made possible through an agreement between the NYC DOE and The College Board. The College and Career Planning Team has developed a website, toolkits, and resources to provide support to school staff to successfully plan, administer SAT school day and help students prepare for the P/SAT exams. This collection contains all of the resources shared citywide.

Included Resources

The SAT school day supervisor planning toolkit includes checklists, event ideas, and templates for school staff to successfully plan and administer P/SAT exams. School staff will find activity ideas for non-testing students, resources, timelines, and FAQs for students and families. 

This SAT School Day Instructional Supports Toolkit is designed to support school-based instructional staff with preparing all students for postsecondary success. This toolkit promotes familiarity with SAT skills, deepen teachers’ understanding and utility of the interdisciplinary pedagogical practices, and provides specific data and resources available to assist with classroom instruction and overall school improvement.

This SAT School Day poster provides students with reminders on how to prepare for the exam day on March 27.

This Khan Academy poster is intended to encourage students to create a Khan Academy account to help them study for the SAT exam.
