PSAT & SAT with Essay on Wednesday, March 27

Hi DVS Families!

The following information is for families of 9th, 10th, and 11th graders.

On Wednesday, March 27th, Da Vinci Science will administer the following tests:

  • PSAT 9 for 9th graders
  • PSAT 10 for 10th graders
  • SAT with Essay for 11th graders

For 9th and 10th graders: Da Vinci Science will pay for the cost of the PSAT for both 9th and 10th grades, so there is no payment required and all students are currently signed up for the test. Also, school will begin at regular time that day – 8:40am. There will not be office hours on this day. If you would like your student to opt-out of this test, please contact Erin D’Souza at

For 11th graders: Students will have the opportunity to take the SAT with Essay here at DVS. This is a special opportunity because students will get to take the test at their own school and in classrooms they’re familiar with on a Wednesday instead of a Saturday. All students will be signed up to take the SAT with Essay here at DVS on this date. Students will complete the registration information during one of their regular classes, so students don’t need to go online or sign up anywhere. The test will begin at 7:40am, so it is important that students make arrangements to get to school before 7:40am on Wednesday, March 27th. If you would like your student to opt-out of this test, please contact Erin D’Souza at The cost of the SAT with Essay is $64.50, and we ask students or parents to pay this amount to Brittany Alvarez at the front office. The best time to pay is between 8:00am and 8:40am Monday through Thursday. Brittany is not available after 3:30pm, so it’s best to pay before school if possible. Brittany will accept cash, checks payable to Da Vinci Schools, or credit cards. Credit card payments incur a 2.75% fee, so the cost of the test will be 2.75% higher if you pay with a credit card. Students who currently receive free or reduced meals are not required to pay for this test. Fee waivers are not required for this administration. Questions regarding payment should be directed to Brittany at
