On Wednesday, October 11th all freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will be taking a Preliminary SAT: freshmen will be administered the PSAT 8/9; sophomores and juniors will be given the PSAT/NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test). Juniors taking the PSAT/NMSQT automatically qualify to enter National Merit Scholarship programs. These are elite honor and scholarship programs available to a select group of students nationally. During the last few weeks all students received PSAT Student Guides from our Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Reta. The Student Guide contains test taking tips and practice tests, which we strongly encourage students become familiar with. For more information on the PSAT/NMSQT, go to the College Board website, www.collegeboard.com.
