SATWhat is the SAT and why is it important?The SAT is administered worldwide at test centers on Saturdays and also on Sundays for those who cannot test on Saturday because of religious observance. Test centers administer the SAT seven times a year. Grants Pass High School is a test center.Created by the College Board, the SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The idea is to provide colleges with one common criterion that can be used to compare all applicants. However, it is just one factor in the admissions decision. Colleges and universities also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, interviews, and personal essays. The weight placed on SAT scores varies from school to school. Grants Pass High School believes that the time spent with your teachers and integrated within the GP community far outweighs any single test.
