PSAT Information

The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is an optional standardized test offered by the school district and administered by the College Board and cosponsored by the Nation Merit Scholarship Corporation to students in grades 10-11. This standardized test provides firsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test.  Scores from the PSAT are used to select the top students nationwide to compete for scholarships through the National Merit Scholarship Corporation scholarship programs. This nationally standardized test allows students to compare their performance with other college bound students.  This test measures critical reading skills, math problem solving skills, and writing skills and provides the opportunity for students to experience a college entrance test in a practice setting.  Following the test, students receive feedback about their performance on these critical academic skills.  Students also have the opportunity to receive information from colleges.

The PSAT testing date is determined by the College Board. Centennial High School will be providing the test to interested students on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 8:00AM - 12:00PM in the CHS West Building. The nonrefundable fee to cover the cost of the test and its administration is $25 and can be paid via FeePay beginning Tuesday, September 4, 2018. The registration deadline is Friday, September 21, 2018. Registrations after that date will be accepted on a space available basis only.
