“Dear HSA Parents and Guardians,
Please be advised that 8th Grade scholars will be taking the College Board PSAT 8/9 exam on October 16 and/or 17.  This exam will help students find out their level of college-readiness.  It is not a pass/fail type of exam but rather their results will help them understand how they compare to other 8th Grade students across the country in the areas of Mathematics & Reading/Writing.  Results for this exam  are typically available in January of the Spring Semester.  It is important for scholars to perform at their best since their scores can potentially help qualify them for college/university scholarships, and/or potentially help qualify them for dual-credit classes in high school.”
