2019 PSAT and PreACT
WFHS will offer the PSAT/NMSQT in school on Wednesday, October 16, 2019. The PSAT/NMSQT is an OPTIONAL standardized, multiple-choice test that includes three sections: a Reading Test, a Writing and Language Test, and a Math Test. The test provides practice for the SAT and offers insight for advising and counseling students. The PSAT/NMSQT administration fee is $17. Registration opens August 30; registration closes at 2:30 pm on Monday, September 16. Students may register using the online payment (click here to register using the Online School Payment link) or in person in Student Services. After registering the student should pick up a PSAT Student Guide in Student Services. Please feel free to contact Ms. Burger in Student Services with any questions you may have concerning registering for the PSAT.
The PSAT allows 11th grade students the opportunity to potentially qualify for a National Merit scholarship if they receive a very high score (generally the top 1%). WCPSS is offering the test free of charge to those juniors with a 4.3125 GPA or higher. Juniors who qualify for the free PSAT received notices with specific directions on how to register. If you believe your child qualifies and they were not notified, please have him/her see Mrs. Edwards. Fee waivers are also available for students based on financial need; any student needing a fee waiver should check with their counselor. Although students in any grade may register for the PSAT, only juniors are eligible for scholarships.
Note: The PSAT/NMSQT is an optional test; no student is required to take it.
All sophomores will be taking the PreACT in school in October; the PreACT is a required test and is only administered to sophomores. There is no registration required for the PreACT. Details will be updated in September.
