Welcome to Hartland High School!
A few key dates for the fall and the 2015-16 school year are:
As most of you have heard, the State of Michigan has changed the testing requirements of 11th
graders to include the use of the SAT, instead of the ACT, starting next year. In addition, the SAT is
going through a complete overhaul and will be completely different starting in the fall. This SAT exam
is used for college admission purposes at every college and university in the United States.
In order to best prepare our families for this important change, we are posting information about the
new SAT as we receive it onto the SAT page of the Hartland High School Counseling webpage.
Recently, SAT announced a partnership with Khan Academy. Khan Academy will be the only
organization the College Board (the makers of the SAT) partner with for test prep materials. College
Board has created this partnership to make sure that every student is able to access high quality test
prep materials for the SAT free of charge. Khan Academy will be rolling out their free SAT test prep
program in early June, and we recommend that all of our current tenth grade students take advantage
of these free online test prep materials over the summer to best prepare themselves for the upcoming
SAT exam next spring.
The Khan Academy SAT website is: https://www.khanacademy.org/sat
In addition, the PSAT has also been redesigned to match the new SAT. In October, all eleventh grade
students will have the option of taking the new redesigned PSAT. This is the official practice test for
the SAT, and will be given one day only, on Wednesday, October 14th. This test does cost $20.00 to
take, and if you want your student to take the exam, you will need to register them on the Pay-For-It
website as part of their school registration in August.
We know you and your student want to do their best on the SAT, and hope that the websites and
information we put together help in preparation for this important test. You can find information on all
of these standardized exams and more at the Hartland High School counseling website at:
We hope you have an enjoyable summer.
