SAT

Parents and Students–important spring testing information!  Recently a letter was mailed home to every PCHS family that explains the many details around spring testing that our 9th, 10th, and 11th graders will be taking right after Spring Break.  This letter explains the test day schedule, what time classes start after testing is over each day, how to prepare and much more.

Juniors, and parents of juniors:  important SAT information!
  After we have prepared our kids for the ACT for dozens of years, we are all just beginning to figure out what the brand-new SAT will look like.  So teachers here are doing a great deal of work in our classes to best prepare our kids.  Too, as always, we need your help.  Much like we had with the ACT, our kids have a lot of online resources they can use to help them get prepared for the SAT.  The Khan Academy has entered into a long-term relationship with the College Board, the creators of the SAT, and the Academy’s online supports are a work in progress.  So we created here a step-by-step explanation of how all our daughters and sons can navigate the site to make it especially useful to prepare each of them well.

We would so appreciate any encouragement you can provide your son or daughter – especially those who are juniors who take the SAT here on April 11, 2017, to spend time over the Holidays and beyond preparing for this important assessment. Like with anything important, nothing beats hard work and time. The more they invest in this work, the more success they will create. Thanks for your help!
