If you are a college-bound 10th or 11th grader, now is the time to bring $25 to the Counseling Office and sign up to take the PSAT test. The test will be given on October 17, and spaces are limited to a first-come, first-served basis. Why take the PSAT? Because, for juniors, it is the ONLY WAY you can qualify for high-dollar National Merit Scholarships since these scholarships do not consider GPA or any other factor other than your PSAT score. Sophomores nation-wide often take the PSATas practice so that , as juniors, they will score higher. Additionally, the PSAT is your only chance to practice for the SAT test, which many students use for college admissions if they score higher on it than on the ACT.




There will be an informational session on Saturday, October 27, from 10:-- - noon at the Anschutz Medical Campus to provide you with an overview of the program and the application process. See counseling bulletin board for more information.
