UPPER MARLBORO, MD –  For the first time ever, PGCPS seniors took the SAT college entrance exam at no cost, as part of the district’s participation in “SAT School Day” on October 17.

“We are extremely excited that so many of our students participated in the 2012 SAT School Day,” said Dr. Alvin L. Crawley, Interim Superintendent of Schools. "We will continue to make investments in innovative initiatives and programs that prepare our students for the increasing demands of college and the workplace."

Over 6,800 seniors registered to take the exam, and 25 high schools held the exam during the school day.

“SAT School Day provides students who could not afford to do so, an opportunity to take the exam. Also, since it’s during school time, it makes it convenient to take the exam at school,” said Ada Leonard, Senior, Suitland HS.

This spring, PGCPS juniors will have the opportunity to take the SAT college entrance during a second SAT School Day.
