Due to social distancing guidelines, we will administer the PSAT/NMSQT to each grade level separately.  This means that when your student’s grade level is not testing, they will work from home virtually and asynchronously.  Your student’s teachers will have lessons in Canvas for your student to work on when they are not testing.  


For example, on October 14th, Juniors will be at Collegiate Academy testing, while Freshmen and Sophomores will work on their class virtually in Canvas, Asynchronously.
