SAT Testing

July 7, 2020 Upper School News

Dear Families,

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!  I am writing with some great news about the SAT at Ben Lippen.  As many of you know, spring 2020 tests were cancelled due to COVID, and the demand for testing is very high.  We plan to make every effort to give our Falcons the opportunities they need to take the SAT and have two avenues for testing this year:   traditional Saturday SAT tests and School Day SAT tests.

Saturday SAT Tests

We are excited to announce that Ben Lippen is now a Saturday test site for the SAT.  Ben Lippen will host the SAT on the following dates:

  • August 29, 2020                    
  • December 5, 2020              
  • May 8, 2021      

We have 100 seats for each test and would love to fill those with Ben Lippen students!  To register for one of the above dates at our site, go to and follow the usual steps to register for the SAT.  The system should offer you the option to take the test at Ben Lippen since it is your school; in case it doesn’t you can search for Ben Lippen using the zip code 29203.   Our test center ID is 41610.

School Day SAT Tests

We will continue to offer the School Day SAT for Ben Lippen students.  This is a full-length, official SAT test given during the regular school day as opposed to a Saturday date.  The dates for these tests are:

  • Wednesday, September 23, 2020   (Juniors & Seniors)
  • Wednesday, October 14, 2020 (Seniors only; also PSAT date for Juniors)  
  • Wednesday, March 3, 2020 (Sophomores & Juniors)    

We have 100 seats for each of these tests and will fill them on a first come, first served basis.  To register for one of the School Day SAT tests, please fill out the SAT School Day Registration Form.  The deadline for registration and payment is 3 weeks before each test.  Payment will be billed through FACTS.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Stay safe – we want to see you soon!
