  PSAT  Attention students! The Practice SAT (PSAT) exam will be on Saturday, October 14th at 7:30 AM.

This exam gives students an opportunity to experience and prepare for the SAT exam which is required for college entrance. By taking this test in your junior year, you have the opportunity to qualify for the very prestigious National Merit Scholarship (NMSQT) program. However. it is also good practice for under classmen, especially sophomores, that would like to prepare early for the SAT exam and NMSQT.
