    Wow, I’m so out of the loop I didn’t realize the SAT had changed. So is the Essay portion now extra credit, otherwise I’m wondering why would anyone bother with it?

    I don’t know about extra credit. More like certain colleges, programs, etc. will want to see it.

    Great info to have! Thank you! I’m going to have to try and make it back this week. I love meeting other homeschooling high school moms!

    Thank you Adrienne! I think the field of moms narrows as our children enter the high school years. It seems that more and more kids we know head off to school for high school. 🙁

    Awesome Trish, thank you! The SATs are definitely in my radar with my oldest in high school now and any changes like this are important for people to know about!

    The SAT will also align with the new Common Core standards used in public schools. The new President and CEO of the College Board, David Coleman, was also one of the developers of Common Core.

    Thank you for pointing that out Brenda. I know I did not include that specifically. I sort of assumed that would be the case with the SAT but it doesn’t seem as though they are broadcasting that information too loudly!
