October PSAT Test Postponed
During a typical school year, students in grades 9-11 have the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT in October. The PSAT is a practice test for students who are planning to take the SAT college entrance assessment their junior and senior year. Colleges do not receive those scores and the scores have no effect on college admission. The PSAT is only offered in person, and through the student's respective school. Due to our current state of remote learning, we are unable to commit to ordering the test; therefore, we will not be administering the PSAT in October 2020. We were recently informed of a new testing date in January 2021, and we will send out more information on as that date draws near.
