Wednesday, October 11th is PSAT day at Walter Johnson High School. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program cosponsored by the College Board and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. The benefits of taking the PSAT are:


*Receive feedback on strengths and weakness on skills necessary for college study.

*Enter the completion for scholarships from the NMSC (Grade 11).

*Help prepare students for the SAT. Students will become familiar with the kinds of questions and directions that they will see on a college admissions test.


Grade 9 students take a practice SAT donated by Capital Educators.


Grade 10 students take the official PSAT/NMSQT paid for by MCPS.


Grade 11 students will take the official PSAT/NMSQT and need to sign up to take the test by paying the $16.00 test fee. Students can pay on the WJ website or bring cash/check to the Career Center before school, during lunch, or after school. Test fees can also be paid outside the Counseling Department at Back to School Night. Fee waivers are available for families with financial need.
