PSAT Test Rescheduled to January 26

September 14, 2020

Each year, Saint George's offers the PSAT test to all SGS students in grades 8-11 to provide families with a tool to track student learning and progress as they move through the Middle School and Upper School curriculum.  It also gives students practice with standardized tests.  Typically, the test is held on a single date throughout the country during the second Wednesday of October, but this year the College Board has created a second test date in January to accommodate schools doing distance learning.  SGS has decided to forego the October testing date and instead offer the test on Tuesday, January 26, in the hope that by then the school will have been able to resume operation in a hybrid or fully in-person model. 
The opportunity is especially important for juniors, since the National Merit Scholarship is based on their performance on the test taken during junior year.  This also provides one final chance to prepare for the SAT test that many juniors will take later in the school year and during the fall of their senior year.  Contact Kerry Clark with any questions.
