PSAT Information

Events on Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Chantilly High School will have a 2-hour early release day for all students.  High school academy courses will not be held. 

PSAT/NMSQT

Students in grades 10-11 will take the PSAT/NMSQT.  FCPS is covering the cost of the assessment for these students.  Only students in grade 11 are eligible to compete for the National Merit Scholarship; however, taking the PSAT/NMSQT in grade 10 provides students practice. More information about these tests is available on the CollegeBoard website: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/  Results will be distributed electronically by CollegeBoard with an access code emailed in December 2019. 

PSAT Pre-Survey

At the beginning of the PSAT, students are presented with a voluntary pre-survey that asks questions about a variety of topics. Parents/guardians may view the pre-survey questions and access information on how to opt out on the PSAT Pre-Survey Opt-Out Policy public webpage at: https://www.fcps.edu/node/36639. Pre-survey opt-out forms must be returned to Caitlin Franks, Assessment Coach, at Chantilly High School by Friday, September 27, 2019. If you choose to opt your student out of the pre-survey, please be sure your student knows they should not answer the pre-survey questions at the beginning of the test.

9th/12th Grade Activities

Instead of taking the PSAT 8/9 this year, students in grade 9 will participate in an academic and career planning experience that supports the transition to high school.  Students in grade 12 will participate in senior meetings including the panoramic photograph.
