The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is administered in October each year. The PSAT/NMSQT is a great opportunity for students in grades 9, 10, & 11 to practice and prepare for the SAT. The PSAT is a tool for schools to predict the success of students in Advanced Placement (AP) courses and is the test to determine National Merit Scholars. Only students in 11th grade can complete for the NMSQT. For more information, go to

The PSAT/NMSQT is scheduled on Wednesday, October 11th at 7:30AM. Students will receive PSAT Guides/Practice Test in late September.  9th & 11th grade students interested in taking the PSAT/NMSQT should see Dr. Simmons prior to September 1, 2019. The cost is $16.00. All first-time 10th grade students will take the PSAT/NMSQT (paid by the state).

The following document will highlight some of the main differences between the SAT & ACT. It is our recommendation juniors take both the SAT & ACT in late winter or spring, and at least one test in the fall of your senior year.





SAT: This is the standard SAT test that is required by most colleges for admission. The test is administered several times each year. Students are tested on critical reading, mathematical, and writing abilities. The new SAT (effective March 2016) includes a Reading Test, Writing and Language Test, and a Math Test. The SAT has an optional essay component, which some colleges will require. SAT questions focus on skills that matter most for college readiness and success, according to the latest research.  All students planning to attend college should plan to take the SAT I. Typically, students will take the SAT I during the 2nd semester of their junior year. We also recommend students take the test again at the beginning of their senior year. For more information visit



SAT Subject Tests: The SAT Subject Tests (formerly known as Achievement Tests or SAT II Tests) are offered in several different subject areas. Students may take up to three tests on any testing date. About thirty percent of colleges require applicants take SAT II Subject Tests. These schools are usually the most competitive and selective schools. A school that requires SAT Subject Tests will require three. Most schools will specify which tests to take (a Math test is often required), but some let students choose. All scores become a part of the student’s record and will be sent along to colleges with all other SAT and SAT Subject Test Scores.

NOTE: The ACT has an optional writing component. Many colleges require students who submit ACT scores instead of SAT scores take the writing portion of the ACT.
