The PSAT is the College Board's preparation exam for their college entrance exam the SAT. The PSAT is given to Juniors each fall. The PSAT is also the qualifying exam for the National Merit Scholarship. Students scoring high enough on the PSAT can qualify to participate in the National Merit Scholarship program, which involves taking the SAT and completing application materials.
Score reports for the should be available shortly before Christmas break.
We also offer a PSAT 8, PSAT 9 and PSAT 10 for our 8th graders, Freshmen and Sophomores, respectively. The PSAT-8 & 9 will be administered in Fall of the academic year. The PSAT-10 will be given in the Spring of the school year. The hope behind this testing sequence is to condition the students for these type of standardized tests. Much of the success on the test is being familiar with the test format and vocabulary.
