Spotlight Title #1

This is an image of sharpened pencils that would be used to take an exam.
All juniors interested in taking the PSAT need to sign up in the Guidance Office.  The registration deadline is Sept. 21.  No registrations can be done after this date.  THERE IS NO COST for taking the test this year.  The State of Alabama will pay the cost for each junior who wishes to take the test.  The PSAT test date will be October 11 at AHS.  Why take the PSAT?  The PSAT helps students, parents, and guidance counselors get a sense of the kind of work students need to do to prepare for the SAT or ACT, and can also help with initial expectations for a student’s college prospects. Particularly strong scores can lead to recognition by the National Merit Scholarship program, which in turn can lead to more money or other positive interest for colleges. So it’s worth taking the time to do as well as possible on the PSAT!
