IF YOU ARE A SOPHOMORE OR JUNIOR, PLANNING TO ATTEND A 4-YEAR COLLEGE AFTER GRADUATION, THIS IS FOR YOU!
The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) is coming up on October 16th, 2021.

- the spring of your junior year and fall of your senior year;
- Receive college materials directly from institutions;
- Get information about how your skills in English and math compare to other students who plan to go to a 4-year college.
- Plan courses to take before you graduate from Northeast High School;
- Enter the National Merit Scholarship Competition.
ON THE DAY OF THE TEST YOU WILL NEED TO:
- Be at Northeast at 7:45 a.m.
