Entrance Exams

PSAT/NMSQT

The PSAT is given once a year in mid-October or early November. Students can take the test in both their sophomore and junior years of high school to better prepare themselves for the SAT Exam. Students should listen for announcements about the PSAT in mid-September. They will sign up in the Counseling Center, pay the fee, and receive a study guide and admissions ticket for the test.

The PSAT/NMSQT is the best preparation for the SAT Reasoning Test. Students in 11th grade who take the test and meet other program entry requirements may enter National Merit Scholarship corporation programs. Most importantly, the PSAT/NMSQT is a comprehensive tool that gives valuable feedback to the student and their school.

All students who take the test will receive an official score report. They will receive scores in Critical Reading/Writing and Math and will see how their scores compare to those of other students across the county. Through a question by question review of answers, students will be able to see which answers they got right or wrong. They will also receive a personalized statement of specific academic skills that need attention, along with suggested steps to improve those skills. 

Students who take the test will receive FREE access to college planning resources, an online PSAT/NMSQT score report with projected SAT score ranges, state percentiles, and the power to sort, answer explanations by difficulty and question type; a customized MySATStudyPlan; a personalized list of colleges, majors, and careers.
