Students & ParentsIdaho Code, all public school students are required to take one of the following college entrance or placement examinations, before the end of the student’s eleventh grade year:  SAT, ACT or Compass.

 To aid Idaho students in this requirement, the Idaho State Department of Education, with funding appropriated by the Idaho State Legislature, has contracted with the College Board to fund a statewide SAT administration, at each Idaho public high school, on a school day each spring. 


Registration for the statewide SAT School Day administration will occur at your student’s local high school.  Contact your student’s school counselor if you have specific questions in regards to registration.

Because the funding for the Idaho SAT School Day is appropriated by the legislature through the public education appropriations, home school and private school students cannot participate with the SAT School Day administration at a local high school.  However, if your student is enrolled in at least one class at a local or online public high school, your student can participate.  Please contact your student’s public school for additional information on registration.


Your student has free access to The Official SAT Online Course through the statewide contract.  Please contact your student’s counselor for additional information and access code.
