SAT School Day/Science CAPT Testing | April 5, 2017



General Testing Information
On April 5, 2017 New Britain High School will administer both the SAT School Day test for 11th grade students, and the CAPT Science test for our 10th grade students. Both of these tests are mandatory graduation requirements. 

On this day, we will run a modified schedule, beginning at the regular time of 7:30 AM and dismissing at 12:30 PM. Only 10th and 11th graders are to report to the building. Those students testing will be provided lunch prior to the end of the school day.

For our 9th and 12th grade students, this day should be used to complete necessary graduation requirements like their Student Success Plan, Senior Capstone Project, and/or a Job Shadowing experience. Similar to last year, we will provide support at two community locations which will be staffed by NBHS teachers to assist students in completing their SSP or Capstone. 

The two locations are: Central Connecticut State University – Vance Building Computer Labs (starting at 9 AM) located on CCSU campus 1615 Stanley Street OR at OIC, located at 114 North St. (starting at 9 AM)

Students can sign up for either of these locations in either the Red or Gold Guidance office, or the Freshman Academy Office. Don’t let your student miss out on an opportunity to receive adult support and complete these necessary graduation requirements! 
If you have any questions regarding any of this information, including requirements for graduation, feel free to contact your student’s guidance counselor.
