This year, MVU has funds that will enable all students in grades 10 and 11 to take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT). The PSAT is a two hour test given once a year in October. The PSAT is in preparation for the SAT taken at the end of junior year and in the Fall of the senior year. Juniors are automatically screened for the National Merit Scholarship Program, an academic competition for recognition and scholarships.
