All 9th, 10th, and 11th graders will take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) on October 11th. Students testing need to be here early in order to begin testing right at 8am. Testing will end at approximately 11:05am. This is a SOAR Student Activity Day which means students will only attend in the morning and will not have high school classes in the afternoon. Lunch will be served at its normal time, 11:05am. AVID teachers will provide you with a letter to give your college instructor(s) if you have a conflict. Dr. Zimmerman will also contact college instructors to relay the importance of our students taking the PSAT.
An assessment like this is your chance to demonstrate that you’re well on your way to being college ready. College ready means that you can be successful in college and go on to graduate with the skills/knowledge to obtain a career in the field you’d like to pursue. A career in a field that you desire can provide you with purpose and the livelihood…meaning money…that will help to support yourself and contribute in ways that greatly impact our world. Please give your best efforts in all that you do here at SOAR, especially when you have the opportunity, like the PSAT, to demonstrate your skills/knowledge.
