10th Grade PSAT Information

posted Aug 14, 2019, 9:29 AM by Terri Morrison   [ updated Aug 15, 2019, 8:37 AM ]

During the 2019-2020 school year, King George High School will be administering the PSAT/NMSQT test to every King George High School 10th grade student at no cost. This will allow families to gain access to college and career readiness materials and opportunities such as potential scholarships. As noted in a previous announcement, students in the 11th grade may also take the PSAT/NMSQT; however, they must sign up with Mrs. Morrison in the Counseling office by September 11, 2019. Registration fee is $20.

Listed below are some reasons why students should take the PSAT/NMQST:
  • Grade 10 pre-college testing provides a basis to increase college participation
  • The PSAT is an indicator for performance on the SAT
  • PSAT includes verbal, mathematics, and writing components; it is used as a diagnostic tool to measure strengths and weaknesses for both students and curriculum.
  • The PSAT helps assess academic skills necessary for college-level work.
  • The PSAT in 10th grade is practice for the actual PSAT in 11th grade which doubles as a scholarship competition.
Through the College Board (PSAT), students will be able to share test scores with Khan Academy (test prep) to provide students with individualized practice based on their PSAT performance. Students do have the opportunity to sign up for a monthly newsletter designed to assist them in the college admissions process. No additional preparation for the PSAT is necessary. Students who would like to practice in advance of the test date can visit this website for more information.

2020 Science & Engineering Apprenticeship Program

posted Aug 13, 2019, 11:26 AM by Terri Morrison

The Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP) provides an opportunity for high school students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.

The goals of SEAP are to encourage participating high school students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further their education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.

SEAP is providing competitive research internships to 250 high school students this year. Participating students spend eight weeks during the summer doing research at 28 DoN laboratories.

For opportunities at the college level check out NREIP.  If you have any questions you can email us at seap@asee.org or call us at (202)649-3833.
