PSAT and SAT Test Prep
On October 13, 2021, all 9th through 11th-grade students will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT exam, and seniors have the option to take the SAT. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) measures what a student is learning in school, determines if he/she is on track, and opens doors for opportunities to prepare and pay for college. In addition, top scores on the PSAT taken in 11th grade have the potential to qualify students not only for the National Merit® Scholarship Program but also for substantial scholarships at many different colleges. Each year students take the test to practice for the SAT and become familiar with the content and format. SAT is a test usually taken during the late junior year or early senior year as a required test for college admissions.
Top scores on the PSAT taken in 11th grade have the potential to qualify students not only for the National Merit® Scholarship Program but also for substantial scholarships at many different colleges.
