PSAT - October 16


The PSAT will be offered nationwide during the school day on Wednesday, October 16. The state of Oregon pays for all sophomores to be registered and take the test. We strongly encourage juniors to register and pay ($20) for the test as a practice for the SAT later in the school year. To register, juniors need to see the WHS Bookkeeper or visit the WHS Web Store (https://webstores.activenetwork.com/school-software/wilsonville_high_sch/), by September 19. Sophomores are automatically registered and don't need to do anything further.


Fee Waivers are available for students who are unable to pay (students should see their counselor or Lyndi Tucker).


SAT School Day - Seniors Only


WHS will once again offer the SAT to seniors on the same day younger students are taking the PSAT. The test will not include an essay at this administration, and students will register with us, not on the College Board website as they do for other SAT administrations.To register, seniors need to see the WHS Bookkeeper or visit the WHS Web Store (https://webstores.activenetwork.com/school-software/wilsonville_high_sch/), by September 19.


Fee Waivers are available for students who are unable to pay (students should see their counselor or Lyndi Tucker).


SAT Prep - Khan Academy


Did your student take the PSAT or SAT last year? If so, and they are planning to take one of these tests this year, they should link their scores to Khan Academy to receive a personalized preparation program, based on their test results in each subject area. Students wishing to link their scores to Khan can simply log in here: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/practice. Follow instructions for linking...and start preparing for the next test! Students are welcome to stop into the College & Career Center for assistance in this process.


SAT Prep Course at WHS


We will also, once again, offer our in-house SAT Prep course, taught by teachers Kirk Fowler and Kate Hanlon. This class will begin on September 8 and finish on October 13, right before the Oct 16 SAT School Day test. To register, students need to see the WHS Bookkeeper or visit the WHS Web Store (https://webstores.activenetwork.com/school-software/wilsonville_high_sch/). The cost for the course is $150, which includes the book.


ASPIRE


ASPIRE encourages and assists students in planning for life after high school. WHS students at all grade levels who are interested in working with an adult mentor in the College & Career Center should stop by and talk to Lyndi Tucker.


We are recruiting adult mentors! If you enjoy working with teenagers and would like to assist them in preparing for their future, this may be the opportunity for you. Mentors are matched with students in order to help them explore post high school options. Adults meet with students in short individual check-in meetings several times a month in the College & Career Center.


Adults wishing to become mentors should check out the ASPIRE website, and contact Lyndi Tucker for information and to set up a meeting.
