- Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT)
The SAT is a college admission test that demonstrates a student’s college readiness. The SAT must be taken for admission to most four-year colleges. The SAT test includes a critical reading section, a writing section, and a mathematics section. We recommend that students take the SAT once in the spring of their junior year and again in the fall of their senior year. Colleges will generally take your highest verbal/math score from both tests and put them together to create a new score.
ETS can provide your students with SAT fee waivers in addition to college application fee waivers!

Many colleges require additional courses above what many state standards require.
In Indiana, students must meet the Core 40 requirement for graduation. Additional graduation options are provided, such as Core 40 with Academic Honors and Core 40 with Technical Honors. Also, an opt-out provision is offered for students if their parents believe they can benefit more from a General Diploma. However, completion of Core 40 is a minimum college admission requirement for Indiana’s public four-year universities, beginning fall 2011. Additional information can be found at Indiana’s Department of Education page below.
A common worry for parents is the safety of their children. At ETS, we wish to provide you with resources to help assist you in keeping your child safe. The following website provides key information that you can view alone, or with your children.
It is especially important for parents to be aware of internet safety in this digital age.
