Standardized Testing Updates

SAT Subject Tests and Essay eliminated by the College Board

Please read the communication we received from the College Board regarding the elimination of Subject Tests and optional Essay with the SAT I.

June 5 SAT canceled at Deerfield Academy

Due to the Memorial Day weekend departure from school for all Deerfield students, the June 5 SAT at Deerfield will be canceled. Once the date is canceled, the College Board will reschedule students registered for the SAT I for testing centers nearby to Deerfield. Students should log in to their College Board accounts and transfer registration to a testing center close to home. Students who had been signed up for Subject tests will have their test registrations canceled due to the elimination of those tests (see communication from College Board above). If those students wish to take the SAT I, we encourage you to register for a June 5 seating near your home.

Student Bills Should Now Reflect September 23 SAT Charge

Students who took the 9/23 SAT should now see that charge reflected on their bills.

Standardized Testing Website Updated

All recent changes to the standardized testing schedule are now reflected on the Deerfield standardized testing webpage.
