SAT/PSAT

SAT:

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions.

PSAT

Over 3.6 million students take the PSAT/NMSQT each year. Only 11th-grade students can qualify for scholarships and recognition, but younger students benefit from early feedback on their skills.

All sophomores took the Kaplan PSAT on October 19th.  Congratulations on your hard work!  These scores will be emailed to students and parents in mid to late January.

All juniors took the PSAT on October 19th.  Congratulations on your hard work!  PSAT scores and detailed score reports will be given back in mid to late January to students who took the test.  Juniors who have not done so already should create an account with the college board. Score reports will be available to students via email.  

Plans for the 2017 PSAT have yet to be determined.
