PSAT/NMSQT

  • The CollegeBoard PSAT exam is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at Sutherland High School.

    The PSAT is used as a performance indicator for the SAT and scores will also be used for consideration into the National Merit Scholarship pool. Though it is highly recommended, the PSAT is not mandatory and PSAT scores are not used for college admission. More detailed information about the PSAT, as well as practice tests, is available online at https://www.collegeboard.org.

     To register for the PSAT, Juniors can pay online through the Pittsford Payment Center at https://www.myschoolbucks.com or bring a check for $25 (payable to PCSD) to the Counseling Office no later than October 13th. Please note, due to having to plan seating, registrations cannot be accepted after the deadline. Once you register, please stop by the Counseling Office to pick up your copy of the PSAT Student Study Guide.
