PSAT is Wednesday, October 10, 2018
All 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT for Free.
If you are a junior, this test is a chance to become a National Merit® Scholar, and it also offers these benefits:
1. Connect to scholarships. When you take the PSAT/NMSQT, you have an opportunity to enter the National Merit Scholarship Program, an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. The test also connects you to more than $160 million in scholarships from one of the largest scholarship pools in the country. Just remember to check “Yes” to Student Search Service® on the day of the test so that scholarship partners can find you.
2. Free, personalized SAT practice. The PSAT/NMSQT is great preparation for the SAT®. Your score also unlocks a personalized SAT study plan on Khan Academy®. It’s completely free. Simply go to satpractice.org, create an account, and link your College Board and Khan Academy accounts to get a study plan based on your test results.
3. AP course recommendations. Your score report will suggest AP® courses that are a great match for you. AP can give you an edge in the admission process and allows you to earn college credit while in high school, which could save you time and money in college. Questions? To learn more about getting ready for college, we invite students/parents and families to attend our College Panel Night (TBD) for 11th and 12th graders.
4. PSAT Score Night back will be in January 16, 2019. We invite students/parents and families who took the PSAT in 2019 to attend a special presentation by Princeton Review to help you understand the score report from the PSAT.
