Opt-in PSAT Testing at PA on 10/15/22 Juniors may opt to take the PSAT/NMSQT on Saturday, October 15, 2022. The main purpose of the PSAT exam is to familiarize students with timed college entrance testing and with the general format of the SAT (check out free practice resources on College Board’s website). The results of the PSAT exam in the junior year are also used to qualify students for the National Merit Scholarship Competition. We encourage students who earned a National Merit Selection Index of 185 or higher on the PSAT as sophomores to consider some preparation for this year’s PSAT, as it is possible that, as juniors, these students may score highly enough to qualify for recognition as National Merit Semi-Finalists or Commended Students. Students interested in PSAT prep might consider Breakaway Test Prep’s ‘PSAT bootcamps’. Contact Ron Michalak, Breakaway’s president, at to learn more.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Student accounts will be charged $18 for the exam. Register HERE no later than September 7. Questions? Please contact Mrs. McMullin at
