PSAT - Juniors

The PSAT is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at Middle College High School and is the qualifying test for entry to the 2021 National Merit Scholarship. Moreover, this is a great opportunity to take the test without paying a registration fee.

NOTE: Due to Covid-19 – we are working with PSAT, Durham Public Schools and Durham Tech Community College to determine if we can give this exam in person. We are trying to estimate interest only at this point. There are a limited number of slots available. If you are interested in taking the PSAT, please complete this GOOGLE FORM.
