The PSAT/NMSQT is a test of the skills and knowledge essential for college and career that students are learning in class. The PSAT/NMSQT is an important step in your child’s journey to college. The test offers students the opportunity to connect with colleges and universities, enter scholarship competitions, get ready for the SAT® and college, sharpen their skills with free practice on Khan Academy®, and learn what AP® classes might make the most of their strengths. It’s a wonderful chance for our sophomores and juniors to be recognized and rewarded for the skills and knowledge they’ve earned.

The cost of the test is $20 payable by cash or check (made out to GSHS) or pay online at the GSHS Pay Schools Online Payments.

Remember that as Sophomores and Juniors you should be signing up to take the PSAT - which is normally given in October at our school every year, although this year, was given on January 26,2021.  

Juniors should be registering to take either the SAT or the ACT your Junior year.  We like to suggest that you wait until the end of your Junior year so you gain as much knowledge as possible. 

As Seniors you can take the test through the December test date.  Most Colleges and Universities will not accept any scores after the December test date (for Seniors).  The SAT and ACT are not admissions requirements for the class of 2021.
