Families of Juniors and Seniors
Beginning on January 17, 2023 and continuing through February 16, 2023, students taking the SAT School Day in April 2023 may opt into the optional essay.
Students must log into their CollegeBoard accounts to opt into the essay. The CollegeBoard defaults students to the SAT without Essay. Castle View High School administration cannot opt students in directly. The optional essay is only available for the SAT. There is not an optional essay on the PSAT 9 or the PSAT 10.
If you or your student has questions about the benefits of the optional essay, please have your student make an appointment with Ms. Malson or their counselor.
