The ACT can only be administered at the Block Island School on October 26, 2019 & April 4, 2020. The registration deadline for October’s test is September 22.

The PSAT/NMSQT is scheduled for October 16, 2019. It will be administered to all Juniors beginning promptly at 8:00 A.M. Students will be dismissed from testing at 11:15. Plan to be on time to school, bring a quick snack to rejuvenate your energy during a brief break, and get a full night’s sleep. More on this will come home with your student.

I encourage Juniors and Senior to attend. It is an opportunity for students to meet face to face with the regional admissions representative. Most often, they are the person reading your application. Additionally, you can ask about scholarships!!
All college bound males must register when they turn 18 to be eligible to receive financial aid.
It is simple and easy to do at www.sss.gov.
