The PSAT is a standardized test that is administered by the College Board. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation is a co-sponsor of this test. The PSAT is a means of assessing a student's skills in mathematics, writing, and critical reading. There are three levels of the PSAT: PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, and the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT).
Students who score high on the PSAT/NMSQT are eligible to receive a National Merit Scholarship ranging from $2,500 up to the full cost of tuition/room and board for a four-year college education. This course is designed for those high achieving students who want to challenge themselves to be in the top half of one percent of students taking the PSAT/NMSQT. Emphasis will be placed on strategies and advanced concepts for each subtest. The course will include all materials and a full-length practice exam for students to measure their progress.
The last class is a practice test and will meet from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
