Badger High School is administering the PSAT test to 80 junior or sophomore students who would like to take it on, Wednesday, October 14th from 7:45 – 12:00 at Badger. The PSAT is a great way to get ready for college as it measures reading, writing, language and math skills in a format similar to the ACT and SAT test. This test also provides the opportunity for students to compete for recognition and scholarships through the National Merit Scholarship Program.
To sign up for the test, students need to bring in a $17.00 check made payable to Badger High School and give it to Mrs. Ingersoll in the Counseling Center.
The deadline to register for the PSAT test is Friday, October 2nd. We are unable to take any late registrations so make sure to have students turn in their check right away so they do not miss this opportunity.
If you have any questions, please contact the counseling department!
