PSAT (7th / 8th Grade Only):

Why take the PSAT?

The PSAT 8 establishes a baseline measurement of your college and career readiness as you enter high school. It also gives you a chance to preview the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10 and connect to AP courses. It is a great opportunity for students to reduce test anxiety by allowing them to practice several times prior to taking the actual exam.

Test Dates: Wednesday, 10/13/21 (during school hours).

PSAT Sign-Ups: Sign-ups will be available in the office until Wednesday, September 15th. To register your student, simply send in payment.

Cost: $18. We accept cash or check in a sealed envelope, please make all checks to SCMS.
