Welcome New and Returning Students! We are glad that you are here.

*PSAT*

Planning to attend a 4-year College after graduation?  If so, this test is for you!

The PSAT test is coming up on Saturday, October 19, 2019.  This only happens once a year and it is designed specifically for juniors and sophomores planning to attend a 4-year college.  

Reasons you might want to take the PSAT test are to:

  • Practice for the “real” admissions tests (SAT and ACT) which you will take in the spring of your junior year and fall of your senior year
  • Have college information sent to you automatically
  • 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 LNS
  • Enter the National Merit Scholarship competition – juniors only

The PSAT is given at LNS starting at 7:45 a.m. on Saturday, October 19th.  The registration fee is $25 (cash or checks payable to LNS).  Registration is September 30th – October 15th in the Counseling Center.

*ACT Prep Class*

Juniors and their families: Would you like the chance to improve your ACT scores and receive a better chance at scholarships for college? North Star is offering a FREE ACT prep class to help you score higher and get better scholarships for school. These classes will be taught first, eighth, or ninth period during the second or third quarter. Students are expected to attend daily and complete work in class to help improve their test taking skills and strategies, which will improve their scores on the ACT. Registration forms can be found HERE and need to be turned in to Mrs. Brown in the Counseling Center as soon as possible since spots for sections can fill up.
