***ATTENTION FREEPORT  FAMILIES***

 We are pleased to inform you that once again Freeport High School will be administering the PSAT/NMSQT to all students in tenth and eleventh grade. The 9th graders will be administered the preliminary PSAT. Please note that the 2020 PSAT/NMSQT will be offered only on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 for students in Cohort 1 and Thursday, October 29, 2020 for students in Cohort 2. There is no fee to take this exam.

The PSAT/NMSQT Program provides valuable resources that help students prepare for the SAT and take important first steps toward college. It allows eligible eleventh grade students to enter National Merit Scholarship and Recognition Programs, and provides younger students in grades 10 with early feedback on academic skills they can work to improve.

If your child is currently scheduled for remote learning and you would like your child to come in to take the PSAT you must fill out the form using the link below by September 18th. Students will not be able to walk in the day of the exam if you have not filled out the form as we will not have extra exams available.

Once again, it is imperative that you fill out the form if you would like your child to take the exam. No further action is necessary if your child will not come in to take the exam.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your child’s guidance counselor.

This includes a new SAT administration on September 26, and the previously scheduled tests on August 29, October 3, November 7 (domestic SAT, international Subject Tests), and December 5. Please note that as the coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic continues to evolve, they will continue to monitor the situation and will let you know if circumstances change closer to the test dates.

Fee Waivers: If you qualify for a Fee Waiver, and need to Register for the SAT, ACT and/or NCAA, please email your Counselor! We will provide you with the necessary CODE to enter on the payment page!

 

JUNIORS (CLASS of 2022):

College entrance exams: As many of you are aware, under the current circumstances, SAT and ACT exams have been postponed and moved to later dates. As this situation continues to be monitored, both the College Board and ACT may intervene and change dates at any time. The best advice that we have is to continue checking both websites, and look out for emails if you have already been affected. Please email your counselor if you have any questions.

Fee Waivers: If you qualify for a Fee Waiver, and need to Register for the SAT, ACT and/or NCAA, please email your Counselor immediately! We will provide you with the necessary CODE to enter on the payment page!


FRESHMEN & SOPHOMORES (Class of 2024 &2023):

Please make sure to log on every day and complete all of your work through Google Classroom. It is very important to stay on top of your assignments.

If you are having any problems/concerns please email your counselor.

This would be a good time for you to work on your resume. Join our Google Classroom to view a sample resume.

 

AP EXAM UPDATE:

Any student enrolled in an AP course will be required to register and pay for the exam in October of 2020. Therefore, no student will be permitted to drop an AP course after they have registered and committed to take the exam. If your child is eligible for free/reduced lunch it is imperative that they fill out the “Free and Reduced Lunch Form” in September of 2020, to qualify for a fee waiver. This form should be filled out as soon as possible.

The cost of AP Exams will be $95 for each exam except AP Capstone Seminar and AP Capstone Research which are $143 for each exam. Checks, cash and money orders will be accepted and should be made out to Freeport Board of Education. Due to the strict College Board deadline, all payments must be received by November 1, 2020.

To prepare for the upcoming school year, please encourage your student to sign up for a College Board account. All College Board programs are connected through one account, so if your student created one for the PSAT/NMSQT or SAT they’re all set. They’ll just need to have their username and password. They should not create a new account if they have an existing account.
