Dear LVHS Families:

Congratulations! Your teen took either the PSAT 8/9®or PSAT/NMSQT on October 16, 2019.  This test gives students a chance to take the next step to college. Here’s what your teen can do to make the most of their scores:

  • Get free, personalized SAT practice. The PSAT is great preparation for the SAT®. Your teen’s score unlocks a free, personalized practice through Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy®. Students go to http://satpractice.org/, create an account, and link their College Board and Khan Academy accounts for a plan based on their test results.
  • Review AP course recommendations at: https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/what-is-ap. Student score reports identify AP® courses that are the best match for them.
