PSAT/SAT/ACT Information

  •  

    For fee waiver information please see your school counselor.

     

    PSAT @ Cave Spring High School:

    The PSAT will be administered on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at Cave Spring High School. This is the nation-wide Saturday testing date set forth by College Board. Roanoke County only offers this date for testing and chooses not to utilize the “school day” testing date simply because it interrupts too much instructional time.

     

    Student Guides with additional PSAT information and a Practice Test will be available for student pick-up from Mrs. Gruse when registration begins.

     

    We recommend the following students sign up to take the PSAT:

     Juniors: Juniors who are planning to attend college should take the PSAT. The best SAT practice is the PSAT because it covers the same topics. In addition, The PSAT test taken in the junior year is the qualifier for the National Merit Scholarship Program.

     Sophomores: We are encouraging sophomores to take the test. Benefits include: They receive feedback on areas of strength and weakness; See how their performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college; Help prepare for the SAT.

     Freshman: We are encouraging freshman who are enrolled in Pre-AP Algebra II to take the PSAT. Benefits include: They receive feedback on areas of strength and weakness; See how their performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college; Help prepare for the SAT.
