Many parents of high school juniors in Connecticut are not aware that all Connecticut public school students have to take the SAT as part of graduation requirements. The law was passed a couple of years ago to be helpful. Prior to this legislation, Connecticut high school students had to take a different mastery test. In a rare bit of uniform consensus based on common sense, forces from all sides agreed that it was far better to simply take the SAT to demonstrate mastery.
For most, the score needed for graduation should not cause worry. But also for most, the SAT will be important for many students to (1) gain admission to colleges of their choice (2) pay for their college and (3) their self-esteem. The good news is that with proper training the SAT will help Connecticut students gain admission to colleges of their choice, pay for college and build their self-esteem.
The PSAT is the first part of the process. It will be administered in October. While we are biased – so ask your own trusted advisors, the best way to prepare: take our test prep class
