PSAT Testing Day set for Oct. 16

The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, better known as the PSAT, will be given to freshmen, sophomores,  and juniors on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at school.
 
While the freshmen are taking the PSAT 8/9, sophomores and juniors will be taking the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test and the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
 
Seniors will not have to report to school that day.
 
The testing will start at 8 am. Students will be dismissed around noon. Class end times will likely vary and students will not be able to use their phones until after they have been dismissed.
 
Other test day details:
  • Students will take the exam in their Falcon Formation class.
  • There is no fee, sign-up, or makeup tests for our students. All students are expected to take the test that day.  
  • On test day students should bring two #2 pencils and a calculator (Check the student guide sent to students for details on which devices are acceptable). 
  • The Cafeteria will not serve lunch

Why La Salle offers the PSAT 

"These tests are designed to give students a chance to practice for the SAT, which is a standardized test used for college admission," said Mario De Ieso, Vice Principal of Academics. "They will provide a prediction of how students might score in the reading, writing and language, and math skills portions of the SAT test."

If you have questions, reach out to your student’s counselor.
