January PSAT Participation Information

On Tuesday, January 26, 2021, Glenelg High School will offer the PSAT to 11th-grade students ONLY. 

The primary purpose of this administration is to allow students to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program. HCPSS does not require participation, and students can be eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program without a PSAT score. Information on the National Merit Scholarship Program and how to apply without a PSAT score can be found here: National Merit Scholarship Program.
