The Bend - La Pine School District will be hosting the PSAT/NMSQT test at Summit High School this fall on Oct. 16th. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a standardized test administered by the College Board and cosponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) in the United States. It is recommended for all college bound juniors who have a 3.0 GPA and who have completed or are currently enrolled in Geometry/Algebra 2/ or Math 10. That being said, any student can take the PSAT. The scores from the PSAT/NMSQT are used to determine eligibility and qualification for the National Merit Scholarship Program for juniors. The test is taken primarily by Juniors and Sophomores. Juniors will be given priority during registration period; therefore, only juniors will be able to register from Sept. 11th - Sept. 18th. Sophomores may be able to register after the 18th. Sophomores please be advised that it is best to have completed Math 10 BEFORE taking the PSAT. Registration for the test will be online through Touchbase.
The PSAT is offered only in English and will be offered at in the gym at Summit High School. In keeping with the guidelines set by the Oregon Department of Education, we will follow appropriate safety guidelines set by ODE & The Bend – La Pine School District. Masks will be required by all students and staff at the test site. The test will start at approximately 9 a.m. and should take approximately 3 ½-4 hours. The cost of the test is $25. The first 200 students to register for the test will have a seat reserved. There are no refunds. If your student has a fine, you will have to pay the fine first.
Once again, we apologize for the limited number of students we can test this year, but we must follow state and district guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety during the test. If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to Assistant Principal Reno Holler. His contact information is below.
