    PSAT

    The PSAT is a dress rehearsal for the SAT. And, if you score high enough, it might also lead to a scholarship.

    If there's one moment when the whole "college thing" starts to get very real, it's when you sit down to take the PSAT. It's the kick-off to college admission testing.

    Registration and Cost: Please contact the guidance office for more information.
