All 11th graders will take the SAT on March 2!

SAT exam Day - March 2!

March 2, 2022 is designated as Indiana’s SAT Day. The SAT is the new accountability measure for all Indiana schools. The SAT is now a mandated test for all 11th grade students in the state of Indiana. As a result, Chesterton High School will be providing the SAT test free of charge to all 11th grade students.

In addition, all 10th grade students will be taking the ASVAB Career Exploration assessment at CHS. The ASVAB Career Exploration program in schools is a modified test administered to 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students for career exploration. The ASVAB test results are sent to schools so participants can explore career options with counselors and teachers that would align with the students Grad Pathway. The scores report how the student performed on each subtest area, and how their scores compare with others who took the test. Participants receive three composite scores in verbal, math and science/technical skills used for career exploration, and the AFQT score is also reported.

All 9th grade and 12th grade students will participate in elearning activities on March 2. Below is a schedule for all CHS students on March 2.

9th grade: elearning at home

  • All 9th grade students will be registering with Ivy Tech DualEnroll to get ready for dual credit opportunities they will have during their high school career at CHS. Students who do or have registered with Ivy Tech DualEnroll will be able to take their Knowledge Assessment activity that will ensure that they are qualified for all dual credit opportunities at Chesterton High School. All Ivy Tech Dual Credit classes are free to all CHS students. Please click on the links below for instructions on how to register for Ivy Tech DualEnroll. We do encourage all 9th grade students to enroll with Ivy Tech DualEnroll prior to March 2 so they can complete the Knowledge Assessment portion of this process.
