PSAT

The purpose of the PSAT Suite of Assessments is to prepare students to take the SAT.  The more practice a student has with a test, they are more likely to be successful.

PSAT 8/9:

PSAT 8/9 is for all 9th grade students and is taken in October (the date is set by College Board) free of cost.  The test can only be administered on one day and no make-up dates are available.

PGCPS uses this test to help place students in Speciality Programs.  A 9th grade student can choose to wait and pay to take the test in December through PGCPS.

Students receive their score reports and test booklets to review and learn from their mistakes.
