PSAT NEWS
Congratulations! Your child took the PSAT/NMSQT or the PSAT 8/9 at school on Wednesday October 10, 2018. This test gives students a chance to take the next step to college. Here's what students can do to make the most out of their scores:
 
  1. Log in to or create a College Board account online. PSAT/NMSQT scores will be released online the week of December 10. Students should log in to their College Board account to see scores and test performance details.
  2. Get free, personalized SAT practice. The PSAT/NMSQT is great preparation for the SAT®. Your teen's score unlocks a free, personalized practice through Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy®. Students go to satpractice.org, create an account, and link their College Board and Khan Academy accounts for a plan based on their test results.
  3. Explore Careers. When students log in to see their scores, they can connect with Roadmap to Careers. They answer questions to find out which careers interest them, what degrees they'll need, and what high school courses to take. They can watch video interviews with people in professions related to their interests.
All students will receive their scores, their test booklet, and an access code to use on Collegeboard.  Sophomores and Juniors will also be instructed on how to link their PSAT scores to Khan Academy.  For more information on the PSATs please visit:  https://parents.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt
