Juniors interested should sign up by October 3, 2017 for the October 11, 2017 PSAT Test in Mrs. Seabourne's office. There are only 10 tests available. Cost is $16. 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.
