Pine Bush High School hosting PSAT Oct. 13

Registration opens Friday, Sept. 14, and may only be done online. See the letter below from Ryan Reed, executive director of Human Resources and Data for the district, for more information.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a great tool for students considering college. The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills. Pine Bush High School recommends that students take the PSAT/NMSQT in order to receive feedback about academic strengths and weaknesses, enter the competition for National Merit Scholar scholarships (11th graders) and help prepare for the SAT.

This year, students at Pine Bush High School will be registering online for the 2018 PSAT/NMSQT. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.  This is the only method of registration available.  Students will not be registering in our School Counseling Office, nor will we be able to take payment.

Online exam registration will begin on Friday, Sept. 14, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. and end on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018 at 11:30 p.m. In order to register, students should click on this link To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end.

Pine Bush High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying the $30 exam fee online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a debit or credit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made and to avoid having to mail your payment. However, you will still have the option to send a check directly to the Total Registration and directions are included in the registration process. 

Here are the important dates for the registration process:

Friday, Sept. 14, 2018 – Registration begins
Monday, Oct. 8, 2018 – Regular registration and payments ends (Registration after this date will incur a $5 late fee.)
Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018 – Late registration begins with a $5 late fee
Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018 – Registration ends at 11:37 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018 – Beginning at 8 a.m., PSAT is administered in Pine Bush High School
Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018 – At 11:37 a.m., registrations that have not been paid for will be canceled and exams will not be processed.
