The Preliminary SAT 8/9 will be offered to all 9th grade students on March 12, 2019 at the Ambridge Senior High School. The PSAT 8/9 is the first test in the SAT Suite of Assessments. Tightly aligned with SAT and PSAT/NMSQT, it establishes a baseline for college and career readiness. The PSAT 8/9 supports all students with early feedback on the skills and knowledge that matter most for college and career success. The PSAT 8/9 also helps students determine what they need to work on academically in order to prepare for college and career success upon graduation from High School.
Additionally, the PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10—It measures academics and what they are learning, shows them whether they are on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. Students over 13 can share their scores with Khan Academy® to create a personalized practice experience. It’s the best way to prepare for other tests in the SAT Suite of Assessments, and the Khan Academy is free. Additionally, the PSAT 8/9 gives each student personalized feedback about his/her academic strengths and weaknesses, thus helping each student to prepare for success in college and careers.

As part of our enhanced communications plan in the Ambridge Area School District, communications with parents/guardians are distributed using our e-blast notification system (Tyler). Information ranging from upcoming important dates of interest, to emergency notices, are sent via this method. It is therefore imperative that parents/guardians verify that the District has the most up-to-date contact information to ensure communications are being received. Parents/guardians who wish to verify their information – or provide changes to information already on file – are encouraged to contact their child’s school or log into the Tyler portal to make the changes. Parents/guardians who choose to log into the portal to make the changes themselves should navigate to the section titled “Student Details.” There, they will be able to make any changes necessary to email addresses, phone numbers and other contact information and preferences.
