PSAT/NMSQT Test for Grade 11

PSAT/NMSQT Test for Grade 11

Contact: Gayle Carpenter x43204

Dear Sea King 11th grade families,


Palos Verdes High School will be offering the PSAT/NMSQT Exam for our 11th grade students only on Tuesday, January 26th, 2021.   Though the PSAT/NMSQT is typically offered during the month of October, College Board has allowed schools to offer a January 26th test date in order for 11th grade students to have an opportunity to take the PSAT as well as qualify for the National Merit Scholarship.  This is not an exam that is required for any colleges, but is a way to potentially qualify for scholarships if they score in the top 3-5% of test takers. Please remember this exam can only be taken once per school year, so if your student has already taken the exam, then they cannot take it again this school year. We realize this is a school day, so any students that take the exam with us will have absences excused.


11th grade students who would like to register for the January 26th PSAT/NMSQT will need to register and pay through Total Registration from 11/12 to 11/25.  Payment will be $23. 


Late registration is from 11/26-12/1, and payment will increase to $28. 


No registrations will be allowed after 12/1.

Details on coming to campus to take the exam on January 26th, 2021 will be released to registered families closer to the test date.  


Please contact Gayle Carpenter, Associate Principal, at if you have additional questions.
