    SPS School-Day PSAT CANCELLED 2021

    The SPS School-Day PSAT/NMSQT has been cancelled. The CollegeBoard who contracts the PSAT with SPS will not be providing additional school-day administration dates for the PSAT/NMSQT during the 2020-21 school year. The PSAT/NMSQT is the route of entry into the National Merit Scholarship Program and since students were unable to take the PSAT this year due to school closures, students may use SAT scores as an alternative method for entry requirements.

    SPS School-Day SAT CANCELLED 2021

    SPS Update | Due to health and public safety concerns, the administration of the March 2021 school day SAT for Juniors has been cancelled. The plan is to provide the school day SAT to all Seniors in Fall 2021. Students are still able to register and take the PSAT and SAT but will need to register on their own through the CollegeBoard. Please visit CollegeBoard for additional information and resources. CollegeBoard SAT Subject & Essay Update | College Board will no longer offer SAT Subject Tests or SAT with Essay.
