Caroline High School is scheduled to administer two tests to your students offered by The College Board. The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) will be given to all tenth graders, and the PSAT 8/9 will be given to all ninth graders. These tests will help prepare students for the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). This test is offered free of charge to all students enrolled in Caroline High School.
Our school will offer both tests on Wednesday, October 14, 2015. The purpose of the tests is to give all students an opportunity to experience taking a college readiness test and identify students who might benefit from advanced coursework. Even if your student has not yet decided to attend college, we urge you to encourage your student to do their best.
10th graders: By taking the PSAT your student will have access to resources that will help prepare him/her for the future. Two resources that will be a benefit to all students are:
1. Test results which will let you know which Advanced Placement (AP) courses students should think about taking, if offered at CHS
2. Access to Khan Academy, an online SAT preparatory resource
9th graders: By taking the PSAT 8/9 your child will:
1. Establish a baseline measurement of college and career readiness as they enter high school
2. Gives a chance to preview the PSAT and SAT
3. Allows them to connect to AP courses
