PSAT Announcement

Juniors, if you have not signed up for the PSAT, please bring your payment in by Friday, October 6 to the Freshman Academy office. There is a $15 fee. Those who preregister will take the PSAT. Others will take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test (ASVAB) on October 11; all juniors will test on this day. We will accept cash or check made to Harrison High School for $15. The first three junior advisements who register for the PSAT will receive a free Chick-fil-A biscuit!

The PSAT, which is aligned to the redesigned SAT, serves as an excellent way for students to preview and practice for the SAT. What are the benefits of taking the PSAT? We invite you to view this document with information on the reasons you should sign up for this testing.

Juniors qualify for the National Merit Scholarship by taking this test. The PSAT results give students access to resources through a free College Board account online score report. Students can use the online score report to look beyond the numbers for insight into strengths and weakness by question context area and level of difficulty. This report also provides a performance summary for each section. This free College Board account also provides the following resources: a personalized SAT study through the online score report, AP potential feedback, a personality profile that suggests majors and careers to explore, and a college/major/career search on the BigFuture website.

Do you want to practice for the PSAT? We invite you to check out these sample test questions on the College Board website.

Please visit the Khan Academy website to find free practice exercises, instructional videos, online SAT practice exams, and personalized dashboard practice questions!

We encourage you to view this web page on the College Board website to learn how you can link your College Board account with Khan Academy.
