The PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 are highly relevant to a student’s future success because they focus on the skills and knowledge at the heart of education. The test will measure:

  • What you learn in high school
  • What you need to succeed in college

The new PSAT/NMSQT includes a Reading Test, Writing and Language Test, and a Math Test.  By taking the PSAT as a junior, a student is automatically entered in national scholarship competitions (NMSQT). 

The PSATs are given at the high school each October, typically the Wednesday after Columbus Day weekend.  The test is encouraged for four-year college bound juniors.  Students should listen to morning announcements  for detailed information.  Students can sign up and pay in the Counseling Office starting the second week of September.
