FREE SCHOOL DAY SAT FOR JUNIORS ON MARCH 24TH!

On Wednesday, March 24th, the District School Board of Pasco County and Wesley Chapel High School will offer the SAT free of charge to all 11th grade students. The SAT will be college-reportable and may also help students who have not yet met Algebra and/or FSA Reading graduation requirements. All juniors are automatically registered to test. Students should bring a state or school picture ID to confirm their identity with their room proctor. We also recommend that students bring a scientific or graphing calculator for the math section of the SAT. Please be at school by 7:25 am—rosters will be posted outside of the media center.
