• Why We’re Offering the PSAT/NMSQT:

    At Stafford High School, we believe in creating as many opportunities as possible for our students to own their futures. That’s why we offer the PSAT/NMSQT® (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) to our students. Whether they’re considering attending a two- or four-year college, going straight into the workforce, or aren’t sure what they want to do after high school, the PSAT/NMSQT can help clarify the path for students. 
    Results from the PSAT/NMSQT give students and teachers insights into each student’s academic strengths and areas they can work on while still in high school. [And students who took the PSAT® 8/9 or PSAT® 10 will be able to see their progress from one test to the next]. 
    Taking the PSAT/NMSQT can also help our students to: 

    • Enter the National Merit® Scholarship Program if they meet the program requirements specified in the PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide.
    • See where they are and set a target for where they want to be.
    • Practice and prepare for the SAT®.
    • Find out what AP® courses they’re ready to take.
    • Plan and pay for college.
    • Connect to their future career.

    This fall, the PSAT/NMSQT will be administered in a new digital format to provide students with an easier testing experience. The SAT will follow in the spring of 2024. Students will take the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday, October 11, 2023, using their own school-issued device or on a device provided to them that day.
