This year, Westmont will be holding the PSAT/NMSQT assessment on Wednesday, October 13th. The test will run from 8:30 am to 12:25 pm. All 10th graders will be automatically enrolled for free to participate in the PSAT/NMSQT and most sophomore classes for 1st and 2nd period will not be held during the test time (students will be excused from any classes they are missing). Interested 11th graders that would like to sign-up for the PSAT/NMSQT may reserve a seat for $20 on the Westmont Webstore. There are a limited number of seats available for juniors, so please reserve your seat by September 30th. Juniors will be excused from their first and second period classes if they are taking the PSAT/NMSQT. All students will attend their third period classes after lunch.

More information regarding the specifics of the PSAT/NMSQT testing day will be sent closer to the day of the test, but please plan to arrive for the test at school on Wednesday, Oct. 13th, no later than 8:15 am so that students may find their room assignments and the test may begin on time.
