Counselor's Corner

The PSAT exam will be on Saturday, October 13 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.

The test will be sold in the Student Store starting on September 24th through October 8th or until sold out. Please bring $25.00 cash or check to the Student Store and receive your official PSAT study guide. Tests may also be purchased through the Student Store Webstore.
