ZCHS freshmen, sophomores, and juniors took the Preliminary SAT (PSAT) last Wednesday. This gave the students an opportunity to practice for the SAT college admission exam. In addition, this provided juniors the opportunity to qualify for National Merit Scholarships. The primary purpose of the PSAT is to provide exposure to the format and questions on the SAT. They also gain information about college readiness, identify how they scored compared with others for college admission purposes , and receive information from colleges based on their results.
