Big Foot High School is Offering the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday, October 14

Sign up to take the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday, October 14

Big Foot High School is offering the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday, October 14 at 8:00 a.m. for any interested 10th and 11th grade students. The test will take place offsite at Grace Evangelical Church and the test fee is $17 per student. 

Taking the PSAT/NMSQT is a great way to find out how college and career ready students are. Also, beyond just being a pre-test for the PSAT, the PSAT/NMSQT is the qualifying test for entry to the National Merit® Scholarship Program, an annual academic competition among high school students for recognition and college scholarships. (Only Juniors may qualify for National Merit status) 

The PSAT/NMSQT measures the knowledge and skills students have developed in reading, writing and language, and math. This test is not about memorizing words and facts they will never use again. Instead, it focuses on what  they have already learned in school and what they will need to succeed in college and career. It measures their reasoning and critical thinking skills, which will be important through high school, college, and beyond.

The DEADLINE to sign up is September 14 at 3:00 p.m. 

To sign up, please contact Mrs. Sheppard at (262) 394-4515 or slsheppard@bigfoot.k12.wi.us

Fees will be added to the students account and will need to be paid before students test on October 14.
