PSAT, SAT and ACT testing

Students in grades 9-11 take the PSAT School Day each year in October. Students can access their score reports in their accounts on the College Board website. Personalized test prep is available for FREE on Khan Academy.

These programs provide grants, loans, and work-study funds to students attending college or career school.
