PSAT: The preliminary SAT will be given at Boiling Springs High School on
Wednesday, October 11, 2017. By taking the PSAT, students practice for the SAT, compete for national scholarships, get mail from colleges and get feedback about important academic skills. The test measures critical reading, math and writing skills. Students need to register for the test in the high school counseling office by Wednesday, October 4, 2017. The cost of the exam is $16.00. Payments must be made by check payable to “South Middleton School District" and may be handed in to Mrs. Strayer in the counseling office. Cash will not be accepted. Although the test is open to students in grades 9-11, juniors who intend to pursue post secondary education should plan on taking the PSAT this fall. After receiving scores in December, juniors are encouraged to register for a spring SAT test day. Sophomores may want to consider taking the PSAT this fall as extra practice and then again in the fall of 2018.
