Sophomore and Junior Students: It’s time to sign up for the PSAT/NMSQT! Cost is $16, payable in the guidance office by September 10. The test will take place at the Administrative Offices (old HS) on October 10. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a standardized test administered by the College Board and cosponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). The scores from the PSAT/NMSQT are used to determine eligibility and qualification for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Not only does the PSAT help prepare students to take the SAT or ACT, the PSAT can also open the door to National Merit Scholarships and other awards. With $180 million dollars in scholarships awarded to students who achieve high scores on the PSAT, how a student performs on this exam can help determine scholarship money for the future. Only Junior scores will count towards the National Merit Scholarship Program. For more information and practice tests, visit: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10

Ohio's options for a high school diploma have recently chaged (with the class of 2018)! In addition to earning 21 high school credits (this has not changed), students can meet the additional graduation requirements by a variety of options through the new graduation pathways. Most students will meet this by earning 18 graduation points total on seven end-of-course exams (also known as AIR Tests or Ohio’s State Tests), with a minimum of 4 points on english tests, 4 points on math tests, and 6 points total between science and social studies tests. Once the default minimums have been met, the additional required points may come from any of the categories. These tests take place each winter and/or spring, and each of the seven tests is worth 1 to 5 graduation points. Students may also earn graduation points through Advanced Placement (AP) tests or College Credit Plus (CCP) courses but will still have to take the state tests in some areas. This points system replaces the old Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) requirement for graduation you may be familiar with. Click here to visit the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) website for more information. Or here for information on the class of 2019 and beyond.
