For high school students who earn good grades but test poorly, there are ways to get into some excellent colleges without taking the SAT.
Step 1: Visit the FairTest.org web site
Visit FairTest.org, the web site for the National Center for Fair and Open Testing association. They offer a list of SAT-optional schools with bachelor's degree programs.
SAT-optional admission policies can benefit students who don’t speak English at home. The English portion of the SAT can be a barrier for many students.

Assess each school on the list. Some have unique entry requirements.
While there are over 700 SAT-optional schools with bachelor's degree programs, high school GPAs are still the strongest admission factor.
Step 3: Consider a school offering the Portfolio Path
Consider a school that offers the Portfolio Path for admission. They require samples of your best graded student work along with teacher recommendations.
