Taking the Tests

Colorado STATE ASSESSMENTS

In April of each year, all freshmen will take the PSAT 9, all sophomores will take the PSAT 10, and all juniors will take the SAT as the Colorado State Assessment.  Students do not need to individually register nor pay for these tests because they are covered by the state for these at-school administrations.  The exact testing dates are determined by the state.  This year's test dates are as follows:

              SAT - April 2019 - Exact date TBD

              PSAT 9 AND PSAT10 - April 2019 - Exact date TBD

There will be a make-up test dates for students who miss testing on these scheduled dates.
