Thank you for working with Desmond, because you were the type of teacher that he needed. I don't believe the test scores could ever reflect his academic growth and maturity. I believe he has learned how to read and study for comprehension and not just completion.  

Yes, we will share your information. Welcome to our village.  

Kind regards,

Yesterday, many of your eighth, ninth, tenth, and eleventh graders took the PSAT. What happens next?

Wait For the Test Scores

Beginning December 5th or 6th, the PSAT scores should be available at your student's College Board account. (Create a College Board account here.)

Use the Test Scores For Scholarships

High school juniors scoring the highest on the PSAT in their state will move forward in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Most students will not become National Merit Scholars, and that's okay. All juniors can use their PSAT experience and scores to determine how to prepare for the SAT and ACT -- other opportunities to qualify for scholarships. 

My most recent class of PSAT and SAT students shared the names of their prospective colleges and universities with me. A number of those schools have scholarship programs that consider SAT & ACT scores when selecting scholarship recipients.
