ASVAB –  All juniors and seniors considering the military should take the free ASVAB as well as any other interested student.  The test focuses on traditional test subjects such as math, reading, English, science but also adds sections on shop and technical knowledge.

PSAT – All juniors and sophomores with A or B grade point averages who like a challenge should consider taking the PSAT for the junior National Merit Scholarship corporation competition.  The PSAT is the National Merit qualifying exam and is given in Groton in October of the junior year.  If a student scores highly on the PSAT, he may qualify for several great scholarships.  Students register now to take the PSAT next fall.  More information about the PSAT can be found at the website:  https://www.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt.   The PSAT is also just a good test to take as it is a timed, nationally normed test.  This test costs around $16 which would need to be paid next fall.  Sophomores may take the PSAT as a practice test.
