The PSAT Test measures reading, writing and language, and math skills developed over many years, both in and out of school. The PSAT will be administered at LCM High School every October and is typically taken by sophomores and juniors. Students who are interested in taking dual-enroll college courses as juniors/seniors can waive the TSI with college-ready PSAT scores.
Scores should be released to students mid-December. Be looking for an email notification. Scores show potential success in AP courses and helpful advice about when to take the SAT.
Juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) and meet program requirements may qualify for recognition and scholarships. More information can be found at www.nationalmerit.org.
The PSAT will be administered at LCM High School on Tuesday/Wednesday, October 10-11, 2023. It will be an online test (the SAT will be online in the spring).
Interested 10th and 11th grade students register and pay $18 to Ms. Cart in the Counselors Office until Thursday, August 31, 2023. Juniors who qualified for free and reduced lunches last year may be eligible for a fee waiver--Please see Mrs. Cart for more information before registering.
