College Board Information

College Board is the organization that creates and administers the SAT, PSAT, and AP exams. All students are encouraged to make a personal account with College Board in order to view their exam scores. Students can also use their account to send exam scores to colleges and/or universities and also register for SAT exams. Visit to set up your account. 
The SAT is offered throughout the year for students at various locations. Students in Illinois are required to take the SAT during the spring of their junior year. Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch may also qualify for an SAT fee waiver. Please see your counselor if you think you qualify.

MHS traditionally offers the PSAT/NMSQT on the Saturday administration date. If this interferes with a student's schedule they are encouraged to reach out to other local high schools to see if they are offering the exam on the Wednesday or makeup administration dates.
