Fall PSAT Testing
Each Fall, the Sophomores and Juniors are required to take the PSAT Test, which is the pre-cursor to the SAT. Due to the large percentage of our students that take the SAT during their Junior and/or Senior years, we feel as though the more exposure and practice our students have to the test the greater chance of success when their PSAT scores count toward scholarship consideration, as well as on the SAT when considered by colleges and universities. This year, the test will be administered on Oct. 19, 2016, and there is a $15 fee required to take the test.Guidance Services

Counselor-Student Conference Procedures
- Students may schedule appointments with the counselors by completing a Guidance Conference Request. These forms are available in the school guidance offices, homerooms and the Main Office. Forms should be placed in the counselor's mail drawer by teachers or the office staff.
- In most cases, student interviews will be scheduled at the following times: before or after school, during homeroom, study period or lunch period.
- After an appointment has been scheduled, the student will receive a pass during homeroom period on the day he/she is scheduled to report. The student should present this pass to the teacher whose classroom he/she is leaving. The teacher must sign the pass and indicate the time the student is leaving the classroom. Students reporting back to class from an appointment with any counselor must present to the teacher a pass that has been signed by the counselor and marked with the student's time of departure.
- In an emergency, a teacher may refer a student to a counselor at any time by issuing a corridor pass to the student. The student must present this pass to the counselor.
- In special circumstances, a counselor may summon a student to a guidance office at any time from class. A test or quiz in progress is the only excuse for denial of a counselor's request.
- From time to time, students will meet with social service agency personnel, armed forces representatives or college representatives in one of the guidance offices. When these appointments occur, normal scheduling procedures will be used.
