All students in grades 9-11 will take the PSAT on Wednesday, October 16, 2019. Juniors can qualify for the National Merit Scholarship program by attaining high scores (details in student guides). Although this test is not required, it is also a tremendous opportunity to practice the SAT. It is paid for by the state of Indiana. Please do not schedule doctor or dentist appointments at this time; there is no make-up date. Students will be dismissed for the day around 11:30.
Seniors have a college visit day on this day. BCHS will also be offering SAT testing on October 16 for Seniors only. Seniors: check your email from Mr. Reilly for details.
