PSAT Information for 17-18 School Year

Register now for next year's PSAT Test @ Waldwick High School on October 14, 2017

The Waldwick High School Guidance Department advises that all juniors take the PSAT/Preliminary SAT Test, which is held in October each year. The Guidance Department highly recommends all sophomores take this test as well. This test serves as a practice SAT for 10th grade student. For the 11th grade student, taking this test will qualify them for the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs.

We implement the PSAT registration early because we have to meet very specific deadline dates in order to secure enough test materials for the October test. Most of the ordering has to take place prior to the summer break. For that reason, we ask that you register by June 12 for the October administration of the PSAT.
