Standardized Tests

FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE YEAR

Take the PSAT for practice. The PSAT is given only once a year in October during the regular school day to include all high school students. Level 1 and 2 students are encouraged to take the test so they can be familiar with the testing process.
Tests are provided for all NWA students. The current cost is $17. Only students who wish to receive their score should pay this fee before test day. The junior year PSAT is the one and only chance a student has to become a National Merit Scholarship finalist.

JUNIOR YEAR

* Take the PSAT in October. (Pay fee before test day)
* Take the SAT I in March, May or June for practice ? See what your scores like. If they are very high, you do not need to take the SAT 1 again.
* In February, April or June, you might want to take the ACT for practice.
* Take the SAT II in June. SAT IIs are subject specific and are required by all University of California Schools and many of the East Coast selective schools.

SENIOR YEAR

* Retake the SAT I and/or ACT in October
* Take your one or two other SAT IIs in November

PSAT is administered through the Northwest Academy.
