Upcoming Event: College Admissions Rep Panel and information about the upcoming SAT for Juniors and their families.

Log into Ms. Lassen's Zoom link on March 9th at 6PM.

Greetings, from the Salem Academy College Counseling Team! We're so excited to introduce this website as a way to keep all of our college and postsecondary planning resources in one place for students and their families. Please take a look around at the different tabs - we have collected resources that might be more helpful for each grade level, and there are separate tabs for scholarships, an upcoming event calendar, and postsecondary special education services.

College in the news

On Tuesday, January 19th, the College Board announced that it will be discontinuing the SAT Subject Tests, (hour-long, subject-specific examinations focused on one topic such as biology, history, and foreign languages) as well as the optional SAT Essay. Effective immediately, this policy will likely be followed by updates to the main SAT as well.
