This three hour test is important for preparing students for the SAT required of juniors by the Connecticut State Department of Education and necessary for admission to many colleges. The PSAT scores are also helpful in placing students into Advanced Placement (AP) courses. PSAT results are expected to be available for students through the College Board in December.
There is no cost for participating in the PSAT and the high schools will assist students in registering.
Students do not need to prepare for the PSAT in any way except to have a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast on the day of the PSAT administration.
9th and 12th Grade Parents
In order to give all sophomores and juniors an optimally quiet test setting, ninth and twelfth graders will come to school on a delayed opening schedule. Buses will be at student bus stops three hours later than the usual pickup time. School will end at the same time as always.
