Registration for the October 15th PSATs has begun- any interested 10th or 11th graders should bring $30 cash or check (payable to Swampscott High School) to Mrs. Brown in the Guidance office. The PSAT is GREAT practice for the SAT, which most juniors will take in March or May.

Other benefits to taking the exam can be [ ]found here through Collegeboard.
