Attention 11th graders:

The Preliminary SAT is a great tool for 11th-grade students considering college. The PSAT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills. Altoona Area Senior HS recommends that juniors take the PSAT in order to receive feedback about strengths and weaknesses and to help prepare for the SAT.

For the 2021 PSAT, students at Altoona Area Senior HS will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

Online Exam registration will begin on Thu, Sep 2, 2021 at 5:00 PM and end on Tue, Oct 12, 2021 at 11:59 PM. In order to register, students should visit
