Testing Update: Acalanes has canceled all weekend SAT exams and will only be holding school day SAT exams. We will be hosting a Senior only SAT school day on Oct 27 and a Junior only SAT school day in March. Information regarding test dates and registration will go out in the Daily Don so please keep an eye out for it. The College Board should notify and refund any students signed up for weekend SAT exams that were originally scheduled at Acalanes. Thank you for your understanding in regards to this change.
