The College Board PSAT/NMSQT helps students become college ready.  It provides detailed feedback on skills, access to scholarships and personalized online tools and is excellent practice for the SAT. The skills that the PSAT/NMSQT assesses include critical reading, mathematics, and writing.  We administer the PSAT/NMSQT exam once a year.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering the PSAT on the alternate test date of Tuesday, January 26th, 2021 for the 2020-21 school year
  • Students can register by purchasing a test at the finance office beginning Monday, November 9th and ending Wednesday, December 2nd (no exceptions)
  • Test sales are limited to juniors only for this year
  • The cost is $35
It takes several weeks to get the PSAT/NMSQT scores back from College Board. We have a "PSAT/NMSQT Scores Back" event for parents and students. At this event you will learn how to interpret your PSAT/NMSQT score, prepare for the SAT and different testing timelines that you need to know. 
*Students that cannot attend can pick up their score reports in the College & Career Center
