PSAT Testing Wednesday, October 11 High School Cafeteria 7:40 a.m.
The PSAT administration will be on the morning of Wednesday, October 11 in the high school cafeteria. Students can sign up in guidance beginning Thursday, September 14. The cost of the test is $17.00 paid by cash or a check made payable to MVRHS. The majority of our juniors are encouraged to take this test. It is a practice SAT (the test used in the college admissions process) which will help us examine your test taking ability and areas you may need to work on. For the top scorers, it is used to determine eligibility for the National Merit Program. Take a look at this preliminary SAT at the www.collegeboard.com website. If you have any question, please contact your guidance counselor.

Senior Meetings with Counselors
Within the first four weeks of school, counselors will meet with all seniors to review their progress on post secondary plans. Counselors will review all deadlines, materials and information related to the post secondary process. We want all application materials into schools and colleges by December 1. Even though many of the application deadlines are later, the student’s application is enhanced if it is in early. If you are applying for early decision, the deadlines are early. Be sure to carefully check all application materials.
