We will offer the PSAT on Wednesday, October 11th at Eden Sr. High School. The PSAT is a practice version of the SAT test that college-bound 11th graders usually take in May or June of their Junior year. This year, the test will be given to students on their Chromebooks in digital format.
If you are a Junior (Class of 2025) OR a Sophomore in Mrs. Donovan's HRS English 10 class, we strongly encourage you to take the PSAT test on the morning of Wednesday, October 11th.
The test will begin at 7:40am and will take approximately 3 hours to complete.
Generally, students who register and pay to take the PSAT plan to apply to 4-year college or university during their final year in High School. However, this year Mrs. Dibble and Mr. Hassett encourage ALL Juniors to take the test, regardless of their post-High School plans.
PSAT results will allow students and parents to see an academic snapshot of how individual students compare to others from across the entire nation. After a series of disruptions due to the pandemic, we believe the PSAT results will be helpful to any Eden student, regardless of their post-High School plans. In some cases, test results may help identify areas of academic strength (and weakness) that can help guide decisions about which path is most appropriate after High School.
The cost of the PSAT test is $18 and may be paid for using the MySchoolBucks app: Click Here To Access MySchoolBucks
Parents who prefer to use a check (preferred) or cash may send the $18 payments with students to the Guidance Office. Checks should be made payable to "Eden Central School" and the memo line should say "PSAT."
The deadline to register for the test is Friday, October 6th. Late registrants can not be guaranteed a test.
Please note: Students who are eligible for Special Education testing accommodations must have received approval from the College Board to receive extended time on the PSAT, which typically happens with assistance from Mrs. Carriero, our school psychologist. Please contact Mrs. Carriero in the Guidance Office asap if you want to take the PSAT using your school-based accommodations and have not already received approval from the College Board. Not all testing accommodation requests are approved by the College Board.
If you have any questions about the PSAT test and how the results might benefit your son / daughter, please e-mail Eden's PSAT test coordinator Jen Dibble (firstname.lastname@example.org).
