The PSAT is a standardized, multiple-choice test that includes three sections: critical reading, mathematics, and writing. The test provides practice for the SAT.

WCPSS will offer the test free of charge to SHS juniors who have a GPA in the top 10% of the district. These students will be contacted directly during the week of September 9 and must complete a registration form in order to participate. All other students will pay a $17 fee to take the exam.
WCPSS students can pay through Online School Payment* or in Student Services (before or after school; during lunch) with exact cash or a check made out to Sanderson High School. Fee waivers are available for students based on financial need. All students testing must complete the form below and submit it, along with payment or receipt of payment, to Students Services.
*Payment can be made by clicking the “ONLINE PAYMENTS” tab on the SHS website and selecting PSAT Registration. Please print and attach your receipt to this completed registration form and submit to Student Services.
