• Why should you

    take the PSAT? 

    The Preliminary SAT or PSAT provides practice for the SAT I Reasoning Test.  You will receive feedback on areas to study for the SAT Reasoning Test.  It also gives the Junior class students a chance to qualify for National Merit Scholarship Corporation’s scholarship programs.  Students need to register with Jeannie in the main office by October 10th.  Registration fee is $15.  For students with Free and Reduced Lunch, a fee waiver is available.  This year’s test will be the morning of October 17th.
