PSAT - Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test
The PSAT is offered to all sophomores and juniors and will be administered on Wed., Oct. 11 at 8:10 am at SHS. Interested students must sign up in the Guidance Office and pay the $16.00 fee with a check (made out to Strafford Schools) or cash. Juniors receiving free/reduced lunches are allowed a fee waiver; see Mrs. Phillips in the Guidance Office. Deadline to sign up is September 25. Once registered, students will receive a practice booklet.
The PSAT test is "preparatory" version to the SAT college entrance exam. Sophomores may take the PSAT as a practice and then take it again their junior year. Juniors taking the PSAT may enter his or her score in the National Merit Qualifying Scholarship Program.
Note: Parents of juniors employed with any major corporations may want to check with their human resource office to see if the company is a participating member of the NMQS program. The PSAT score may be required the senior year when filling out scholarship applications offered from the corporation.
