More Information

Students will be registered automatically.

Juniors will be taking the PSAT on Wednesday, October 16.  Students need to arrive at First Reformed Church no later than 7:30am.  

Students need to bring the following:

  • Picture ID (just in case staff are unable to personally identify them)
  • Pencils/erasers (some will be provided but are not guaranteed)
  • Calculator (some will be provided but are not guaranteed)
  • Snack/Water for breaks - optional, encouraged for students using extended time

Students should not bring their cell phones (or other electronic devices).  Students will need to surrender their phone if they do and it will remain off until testing is over. Students are asked to leave their phones in their car, as this makes the check-in process more efficient.

The test will end at approximately 12:00pm and students will be given 30 minutes to eat lunch and return to school.  Students are encouraged to bring a sack lunch, however, they will still be able to get hot lunch when they return to school. Students who signed up to take the bus must ride the bus back to school.
