The PSAT is the practice test for the SAT. It is offered one time every fall for 10th and 11th graders and is the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship. 10th and 11th students who took the PSAT this past October will be able to view their scores in December on their College Board account. We encourage students to create their account at www.CollegeBoard.com using the email they share on testing day in their demographic information. Students must use the same email address for all PSAT, SAT, and AP testing!
Registration for PSAT on Saturday October 19th will begin on Friday September 13th on MyPaymentsPlus. Cost is $23. College-bound sophomores and juniors are encouraged to take the PSAT. This is the only time the test is offered this year. No other paperwork is required other than payment on MPP. Pricing will be automatically adjusted for those with pre-authorized documentation for financial assistance.
Students will access their scores through the College Board website. Please visit the link below that outlines several features including how to access your scores, how to understand your score report, and how to access free test prep through KHAN Academy: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/scores
Pre-ACT is a practice ACT exam given to our 10th graders in the late winter (typically March). Registration is similar to the PSAT as mypaymentsplus.com is utilized. The testing experience is a shortened version of all four ACT test subjects: English, Math, Reading, and Science.
