What is the PSAT?!?!

October 18th and 19th, 2024 at 8:00 AM

  • The Preliminary SAT measures critical reading, math and writing skills. You will not have to recall facts from literature, history or science, or complete math formulas, as this test measures your reasoning and critical thinking skills. This test is a good introduction to the SAT, which some colleges require for the admissions process.

    Will it cost me anything?
    • Pine Valley will be paying for every junior to take this test. All it will cost you, the students, is your time and effort.
