It's not (just) the PSAT part that's confusing. That was just her example.

My kid is a junior, so only some of these apply to him (but which?). Some only apply to seniors. Some apply to both!

(Not that I'm complaining! This blog is what is getting me through homeschooling high school and I appreciate EVERY effort you make to help us!!)

Oops, Lee - Denise was really asking, "In which years do we have to do each of these things?" F'rinstance, everyone has to update their transcripts in April. But Freshmen don't need to worry about the PSAT in September. I'm wondering the same things, so please, pretty please, enlighten us.

Very good question, Denise and Jo! You are correct, Freshmen typically think about registering for the PSAT in late summer/early fall. Here's an article that I think will answer your question:

Take the PSAT for Fun and Profit

That article includes info and links you can use to find out when and where the PSAT is given in your area, and how to prepare. I hope that helps!

These are the current dates, but they do change every year. The registration links remain the same, though.

  • I'm Not Afraid to Teach High School Geology!

    High school geology and earth science: learn about the rock types, different layers of the atmosphere, throw in some volcanoes and earthquakes…I think we have it covered. And truth be told, you can cover much of this in the lower grades, even into middle school.
