The PSAT/NMSQT is a standardized test taken by high school students across the nation each October. Over 600 corporations, colleges & universities, private foundations, and other organizations support this test and scholarship competition. Our district believes this test provides many opportunities and benefits for our students, and we will be participating in this administration. Students must be juniors in high school to qualify for scholarships, but sophomores will also take the test as practice. All of our sophomores and the top 5% of junior scorers from last school year will take the PSAT/NMSQT exam FREE of charge. Other juniors will be able to sign up for the PSAT/NMSQT on a first-come, first-served basis. The number of tests each school has available is limited and the cost of the PSAT/NMSQT is $17.00.
Registration for the PSAT has begun, and the deadline to request and pay for the PSAT/NMSQT is October 1, 2019 at 4:00 P.M.
NO ACTION IS REQUIRED FOR SOPHOMORES. THEY ARE AUTOMATICALLY REGISTERED AND NO FEE IS REQUIRED.
