Sophomores and Juniors will be taking the PSATs


All 10th & 11th grade students will be taking the PSAT on Wednesday, October 10th.

We are registering all 10th grade and 11th grade students, so students don’t have to sign up or pay for it.  We have it covered!


Testing will begin promptly at 7:50 a.m.  We will test through periods 1/2 White, 3/4 White, Advisory, a portion of 6/7 White, and then students will be released for lunch.  Period 8/9W will resume as usual. PSAT day is a WHITE day (previous email reported a Maroon day, but that was an error)


All students will be assigned to specific testing rooms, and we will communicate your testing room assignment one week prior to the PSAT exam.


Region 10 will be notified and students in grades 10 and 11 will be excused from attending Region 10 on this day so they can take the PSAT exam.


Students will need to bring #2 pencils and a College Board approved calculator



Want support to prepare for the upcoming PSAT exam?

Have questions about the FSA ID or FAFSA?
File as soon as possible
Filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step to receiving financial aid. We recommend filing your FAFSA as soon as possible.

To complete the FAFSA, all students need an FSA ID--a username and password used to access FAFSA.gov. Additionally, if parent information is required on the FAFSA, one parent will also need his/her own FSA ID.

We'll guide you through the process
We're hearing lots of questions this year regarding the FSA ID. If you need assistance with your FSA ID or FAFSA, come to one of FAME's free In-Person FAFSA Help sessions. Every session is staffed with a financial aid expert to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Find and register for an event near you:
