A panel of college admissions colleagues will offer insight and advice about the current admissions landscape, how to navigate the process, what colleges are looking for, how decisions are made, and finding colleges that “fit.” Audience Q & A will follow. This will be a virtual event, Zoom link will be sent prior.
All sophomores and parents are strongly encouraged to attend. Parents will learn about the BMS College Counseling program and hear a keynote address on an admission topic by a college admission officer.
The PSAT 10 (practice test for the SAT) is purely practice. This is the same test that the juniors took in the fall (the PSAT/NMSQT). It is the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test when taken as a junior (only juniors are eligible for National Merit Recognition). Our hope is that by administering the PSAT 10 in the spring sophomores will be able to test under more “normal” testing conditions. Sophomore students will be automatically registered for this test by the school.
This testing is for Sophomore students only. Just as the PSAT 10 is a practice for the SAT, this mock ACT test is a practice for the ACT. Administered by Capital Educators, Inc. a test prep company out of Rockville, MD. This is an optional opportunity for practice. Capital Educators will prepare score reports for each student.
