• PSAT, SAT, and ACT Resources

  • The PSAT exam is taken every year in October by all 11th grade students. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a standardized test administered by the College Board and cosponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation in the United States. It is an exam that allows students to see where they would be if they were taking the SAT exam at that time. The results help students understand where they need to improve to raise their scores to the desired range. A high score can lead to more money for college as well as being able to earn scholarships.

  • SAT- All students in 11th and 12th grade are expected to take the SAT beginning Spring semester of their Junior year. The purpose of the SAT is to measure a high school student's readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants. College admissions officers will review standardized test scores alongside your high school GPA, the classes you took in high school, letters of recommendation from teachers or mentors, extracurricular activities, admissions interviews, and personal essays. How important SAT scores are in the college application process varies from school to school.
