On Wednesday, October 10, all SVUSD high schools will be on a minimum day schedule and the PSAT exam will be administered free of charge to students in grades 9, 10, and 11 enrolled in the following classes:
English 1, English 2 and English 3 including Honors/IB, HL, Intensive, and Med Sci
Taking the PSAT can encourage a student to start thinking about life after high school, about college and career goals, and about the education needed to reach those goals. The test measures the reading, writing and math skills students need for college and career readiness. The PSAT is the only test that qualifies juniors for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Students wishing to prep for the PSAT may access prep materials free of charge through Khan Academy and the College Board. Score reports will be available to families and schools in mid-December, and the results of these tests are not reported to colleges.
