JUNE ACT IS ON
JUNE 6 SAT IS CANCELLED
LEAP’s lead team will be attending ACT and SAT hosted events
on 4/17/20 and will update this blog
with what we learn and LEAP’s response.
From Ed Colby, ACT Spokesperson
“Our primary concern at this time is the health and safety of students and our testing staff. As CDC and local guidelines for safety allow, in addition to our planned June 13 and July 18 test dates, we will be offering new test dates on June 20 and July 25 to provide students with options to schedule and reschedule their registration,” he said. “We will also offer a remote proctoring option for the ACT test, allowing students to take the test at their home on a computer. As early as August, we will begin offering students a practice experience with the at-home ACT and will launch the option in late fall/early winter 2020 as part of our national testing program. We’ll be releasing more information soon.”
On 4/13/20 only six Greater Cincinnati schools were host sites for the July ACT, as compared to 26 for the June test. As of 4/17/20, this number has grown to ten schools. While we celebrate the schools for stepping up to host, we still believe there will be a surge of students wanting the July test and encourage families to register ASAP to not get closed out.

June SAT and SAT Subject Test Administration
To keep students safe, and in alignment with public health guidance and school closures across 192 countries, we will not be able to administer the SAT or SAT Subject Tests on June 6, 2020.
Future SAT Administrations, Including September
If it’s safe from a public health standpoint, we’ll provide weekend SAT administrations every month through the end of the calendar year, beginning in August. This includes a new administration in September and the previously scheduled tests on August 29, October 3, November 7, and December 5.
Students can register for these administrations starting in May. We’ll contact students directly when we have the exact date. Eligible students can register with a fee waiver.
For each administration, we’re preparing to significantly expand our capacity for students to take the SAT once schools reopen. We’re calling on our member schools and colleges, as well as local communities, to provide additional test center capacity so every student who wants to take the SAT can do so.
Students can get early access to register for August, September, and October if they’re:
– Already registered for June
