PSAT Registration Open

Sophomores and juniors planning to attend college are encouraged to sign up for the PSAT.  This test familiarizes students with the SAT which is required for admission to most four year colleges.  The scores for the PSAT taken during junior year are used for national merit scholarship consideration.  Did you know National Merit Scholars are highly recruited by major universities and receive up to full ride scholarships?  The test is only given once a year and the date this year is October 10th from 8 am-11 am in the MPR.  The cost to take the test is $16.  A limited number of waivers are available to students on free or reduced lunches.  Students can also link the results of their PSAT to Khan Academy for FREE online test prep for the SAT!  Don’t miss out as the test is limited to the first 70 sophomores and juniors who sign up and pay the fee or secure a waiver.  See Mrs. Millar in the main office now!
