SAT School Day Information and Registration 

HB 3 dictates that Texas students will be given the opportunity to take either the SAT, ACT, or TSI test ONCE for free, paid for by the state. In connection with this, KHS is conducting the SAT school day test. We will only offer the SAT once in the Spring, and it will be given DURING THE SCHOOL DAY. If you would like to test for the SAT or the ACT or on another date, you will need to contact College Board or ACT.

See below for registration and schedule information. PLEASE NOTE: This is an in-person test. We do NOT offer a virtual or on-line option.

COST: Free or $ 60.00 (depending if you have used your free test yet)

FREE OR PAY? If you took the SAT school day here at KHS last Spring , you used your free test & have to pay for your test. Bring your CHECK or exact CASH to Mrs. Sprague in the KHS front office. SAT and the student's full name must be included in the memo line!


SAT and ACT TestingThe SAT and ACT are standardized, objective tests that are required for entrance into four-year colleges and universities. Your scores show colleges how ready you are to handle the work at their institutions and how your skills compare with other applicants. As a high school Junior, you should be preparing to take these exams during the spring of your Junior year or at the latest, fall of your Senior year.
