Testing and Assessments


The PSAT prepares you for the SAT® and is the perfect way to take the next step to college. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is an assessment administered to 10th- and 11th-grade students that helps prepare them for the SAT, college, and careers. Historically, students who take the PSAT/NMSQT score higher on the SAT, on average, than those who don't take the test. Registration will be available at your school, please see the counseling department!

The SAT assessment is a college entrance exam used to assess Junior and Senior students' readiness for college and is currently aligned with high school curriculum to reflect what students have learned in high school. 

The ACT college readiness assessment is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students' academic readiness for college.  The ACT is the capstone of our College and Career Readiness System. The test uses the same score scale as ACT Explore and ACT Plan, making the system an effective tool to monitor academic progress and student growth.

The ASVAB is the most widely used Interest/Career inventory in the United States. It is an opportunity to explore careers and match those with individual interests. Although the test is administered by the military, it is not (and never has been) a requirement that a test-taker enlist in the armed forces.
