On Wednesday, October 11th, all 9th and 10th grade students will engage in our College Readiness Day! 9th grade students will complete a PSAT 8/9practice test and 10th graders will take the PSAT 10. Both of these tests give students a preview of and practice with one of the major college admissions tests.
They’ll practice again each year at Denali, and will take a college readiness expeditions course as juniors, which includes test preparation for the PSAT, SAT and ACT. The results of the PSAT are for the student’s use only – they’re never sent to or seen by colleges. In the afternoon on Wednesday, students will get a preview of the college search and application process.
Please ensure that your student arrives at school on Wednesday on time, well-rested, and having eaten a full breakfast. Important note– if students are absent on test day, we are NOT able to offer make-up tests on a different day. This is College Board protocol, so it’s not something we have flexibility to do.
