PSAT at North High
The PSAT will be administered on Saturday, October 16th here at North High School between the hours of 8:00 AM and approximately 12:00 PM. All juniors who are considering attending college upon graduation from high school are encouraged to take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test which serves as practice for the SAT and as a qualifier for National Merit Scholarship consideration.
Registration for this exam should be done electronically through the Parent Portal. The fee for the PSAT is $25.00 and payment can be made on-line via credit card or by providing checking account information. Detailed instructions for making payments electronically can be found below.
Please be aware that registration for the PSAT is a two-step process. A payment needs to be made online. Once a payment is submitted, you will need to print a receipt and bring it to Ms. Zehnder or Ms. Bertorelli in the Guidance Office. You will then be given a PSAT bulletin, which includes a practice test, and an admission ticket for the exam. This must be done by Tuesday, October 5th.
Should your child require special testing arrangements because of religious observance, please see Ms. Zehnder in the Guidance Office as soon as possible. A letter from a clergyman will need to be provided due to a limited number of tests being available for Wednesday, October 13th testing.
Those testing should report to North High on Saturday, October 16th by 7:30 AM.
