PSAT Information

CB South will be hosting the PSAT this year on Saturday, October 15th. This is a practice test for the SAT and we encourage sophomores and juniors to consider taking the test. The results of the test are not part of a student’s transcript and are not shared with colleges so it is a great opportunity to receive feedback on strengths and weaknesses for standardized testing. If you have questions concerning who should take the PSAT, do not hesitate to contact your student’s counselor.


Registration begins September 12th and ends October 7th. All registration is completed through My Payments Plus which can be accessed at MyPaymentsPlus or the CBSD app on your smart phone. The cost is $20 per student. After a student registers, he/she will receive a practice booklet in Titan Forum. Room assignments will be posted the week before the test.


Students are asked to arrive on test day no later than 7:45 and attendance will be taken by 8AM. Students should bring several sharpened pencils and a calculator. The new PSAT is a bit longer than in the past. The actual test is 2 hours and 45 minutes. It will take approximately 30 minutes for the students to complete the demographic information on the bubble sheet and there is also a break. We are estimating that the students will be finish by 11:30 but it could be a little longer. Each room is dismissed separately when the test is completed.

There is something for everyone in the magazine, from sports to travel to entrepreneurs to history or community service.

Volunteers must have their clearances on file with the CBSD Human Resources Department prior to starting volunteer work. The new Pennsylvania State mandate does allow until July 1, 2016 to obtain background checks. However, in the best interest of the safety and security of our students, we are asking volunteers to comply with submitting background checks prior to volunteering in the 2016-2017 school year.
