Attention Seniors: Seniors will take the ACT on Tuesday, Oct. 6th. This is the ACT that you were scheduled to take this past spring during your Junior year, but Covid postponed it. Please mark your calendars and plan to be in attendance on that day! Thank you!
Attention Juniors: Juniors interested in taking the PSAT / NMSQT (Preliminary SAT / National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) should sign up by Oct. 12, 2020 for the October 14, 2020 PSAT test in Mrs. Simily's office. There are only 10 tests available. Cost is $17. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation hands out over $50 million to more than 10,000 college and college bound students. You are automatically registered when you take the PSAT, and will be notified if you are eligible to participate in the program based on your PSAT score. Then you must meet eligibility requirements for specific scholarships. The SAT is a college entrance exam usually used for Eastern and West Coast Colleges. It is not as popular in the Midwest as the ACT. The PSAT is strongly recommended for high achieving academic students because it could possibly qualify them for scholarships if their score is high enough.
Attention Seniors: All seniors will take the ASVAB test on Thursday, Nov. 19th, at 8:30 a.m. This is mandatory for all seniors. Unitec students will not attend Unitec that day. Please make sure to mark your calendars for attendance. All seniors that attend that day will get an open lunch at a later date. Students that score 63 or higher will get an extra open lunch.
