Sophomores and Juniors,

The PSAT (Preliminary SAT) may be purchased from the main office until Friday, October 8th, for $18. This exam will be administered October 13th at 8:00am on the WSU Davis Campus.

PSAT/NMSQT is given to 10th and 11th grade students. For 10th grade students this is a great opportunity for a Preliminary SAT. We often get asked what exam students should take, the ACT or SAT. The answer is, find the test that works best for the student. Both ACT and SAT are used for college admissions across the nation, and most colleges do not prefer one test over the other. Having a student take the PSAT gives them an opportunity to see how they would perform on the SAT to determine if it would be a better fit.

Students who take the PSAT/NMSQT in 11th grade may also qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program. The College Board also partners with other scholarship organizations to find qualified students to apply for their programs.

If you are interested in taking this exam, please contact the front office.


We will continue to send emails to schedule your College and Career Readiness (CCR) meetings. Please be watching those and schedule the meetings by following the instructions we include. We want to make sure to meet with every student and need your help to make sure you're signed up!

Don't worry if you haven't been invited yet!

Wait, don't 🍁 yet! We still have to get our groove on...
