An Update from the College and Career Center


Hey knights! As you know, the wonderful Mrs. Dalton works so hard to make sure students have as many resources as possible in knowing how to succeed for college and how to get different scholarships. Here are a couple updates from Mrs. Dalton and the college and career center:

First of all, PSAT scores were released yesterday and are available to check right now! The PSAT is an extremely important standardized test that can determine if you are eligible for a national merit scholarship or a national Hispanic merit scholarship to go toward college education. The better score you get on the PSAT, the better chance you have at becoming a merit scholar.

If you are unsure of how to get your scores, here’s how. To start, once your scores are ready to be checked, you should get an email from College Board  with instructions on how to create a College Board account. Once you create this account, you will be able to access your online score report using your specialized access code to view them. It’s as simple as that. However, if you would like to get a hard copy score report, ask either Mrs. Dalton, or your counselor.
