On Wednesday, Oct. 19, OHS 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT test during the school day. The PSAT is a great way for students to jump start their college journey. For juniors, by taking the PSAT, they will be entered into college and scholarship databases and will be automatically screened for the National Merit Scholarship Program. For both sophomores and juniors, it's also a great way to preview and practice for the the new SAT test. Plus once results arrive, testers will have access to an individual account with the College Board that will get them free personalized SAT study recommendations in conjunction with Kahn Academy, and they will receive recommendations for future AP course enrollment.
