October 12

On October 12th, Nathan Hale will be administering the SAT for 12th grade and the PSAT/NMSQT for 11th grade. Students are automatically registered for the test by Seattle Public Schools. No action is necessary on your part. There is no charge for the exam. Students may send up to 4 SAT score reports to colleges for free.

Testing practice is available at the College Board online: https://satsuite.collegeboard.org/sat/practice-preparation

The SAT is an additional pathway to graduation. A qualifying score on the SAT can be used to satisfy the graduation requirement for ELA and/or math. Current qualifying scores are 410 for ELA and 430 for math.

The PSAT/NMSQT can qualify students for the National Merit Scholarship Program and other scholarships. It takes 2 hours and 45 minutes and covers reading, writing and math. To prepare, get practice tests with official SAT practice on Khan Academy online. PSAT/NMSQT study guides are now available in the Counseling Office. Please email Melinda Greene with questions: msgreene@seattleschools.org
