All high school students (grades 9-11) will take the PSAT.
On Wednesday, October 10th, all 9th-11th grade students will engage in our College Readiness Day! 9th grade students will complete a PSAT 8/9 practice test and 10th and 11th graders will take the PSAT/NMSQT. Both of these tests give students a preview of and practice with one of the major college admissions tests. Our 11th graders are also taking a college readiness expeditions course this year, which includes some guidance on 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. 11th graders are also automatically entered in the National Merit Scholarship Competition when they take the PSAT and with high scores they could win money for college!
