OPRFHS Juniors

2022-2023 State SAT School Day for OPRFHS Juniors

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has implemented the SAT as a required college-readiness test for all juniors. The SAT our students take at school can be used for college admissions, as nearly every college and university that requires a test score accepts SAT. All public high school juniors must take the SAT School Day in order to earn a high school diploma, unless the student has an IEP that specifies the DLM-Alternate Assessment. School code also requires the scores from the state-mandated college readiness assessment to be placed on students’ transcripts. SAT scores will be shown on the transcript, unless parents request that the score be removed. More information about that process is available here.
