One you have signed up, you have the option to get notifications via email, text, and/or app push notifications and to customize the language in which you receive your messages. To update these settings:

PSAT Registration Info
ATTN: Sophomores and Juniors:
In preparation for college and career readiness, we are offering college bound Juniors and interested Sophomores the opportunity to take the PSAT exam. The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is a standardized college readiness exam that assesses evidence based reading, writing, and math skills. Early administration of the PSAT will enable students to practice taking a formalized college entrance exam and an opportunity to receive a customized score report to help them further develop their skills. Additionally, the PSAT will provide students an opportunity to meet the requirements to compete in the National Merit Scholarship Program. The PSAT will be held during school hours on Wednesday, October 12. To cover the cost of the exam and the customized score report, students must pay $18.00 to the Counseling Office by Friday, September 30, 2022 (check made payable to CCS District Treasurer). Cash, in the exact amount, will also be accepted. If this fee is a financial burden, please contact the Counseling Office.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
