PSAT Opportunity for Incoming Juniors This Fall
We are pleased to announce that we will be offering a school-day PSAT/NMSQT testing opportunity for interested 11th graders in the fall. Testing will occur at your school on October 16, 2024.

This is a slight departure from last year when we hosted juniors at two different high schools on a Saturday. We hope that by returning the testing to students’ own schools – and holding the sessions during the school day – the process will be more convenient and comfortable for everyone.

A few more factors to consider:

  • Juniors who take the PSAT are automatically eligible for National Merit Scholarships
  • Students and families are responsible for covering the cost of the tests.
  • Fee waivers are available on a case-by-case basis.
  • The PSAT is completely optional.
  • Juniors will also have the opportunity to take the SAT – at the district’s expense – in the spring.

Accommodations Request Deadline
If you require accommodations for the PSAT/NMSQT, you must begin the application process with your school counselor before the end of the school year. All accommodations must be approved by the College Board. The College Board deadline for accommodations is in August.

This opportunity is open to incoming juniors only. You should expect to receive information about test registration and cost from your school counselor very soon.
