Oakland Tech 10th grade students are scheduled to take the PSAT — for free — on Wednesday, Oct. 11. Because sophomores have been automatically registered, all they need to do is arrive at school on test day with their student ID, sharp pencils, a calculator and a snack/packed lunch — rested, nourished and ready to focus.
11th graders interested in taking the PSAT are welcome to do so.However, they are responsible for the $15fee unless they qualify for a fee waiver.
Juniors who score well may qualify for National Merit scholarships.
The deadline for juniors to sign up is Tuesday, Oct. 3.
How 11th Grade Students Register:
Register with Ms. Whisenston, Tech’s Treasurer, and pay the $15 fee with a check made out to Oakland Technical High School NO LATER THAN Oct. 3.
Register with your counselor if you qualify for a fee waiver. Again, no later than Oct. 3.
At the moment we are not registering 9th grade students in order to ensure we have room for all of our sophomores and interested juniors. We’ll let families know if and when we’re able to accommodate freshmen.
