PSAT: October 17th, 2020

It Only Happens Once a Year!!

A Smart Start: the Preliminary SAT (PSAT)

Research shows that students score higher on the SAT simply because the PSAT provided them a chance to practice!

Even better, all PSAT test takers receive a comprehensive report outlining their academic strengths, and areas for growth. Each student will then have an opportunity to create an online test prep program targeting their needs through a collaboration with Kahn Academy! Pretty awesome!!

Here's What the PSAT is all about: PSAT Sample Questions
