PSAT Registration Begins Today

Hi Families!

On Wednesday, October 14th, DVS will be administering the PSAT to all 10th and 11th grade students. This test will take place during regular school hours, and it is great preparation for the SAT which students will take in the spring of their 11th grade year. The cost of the test is $15 per student. Please use the link below to register:

Students will also be given a booklet explaining more about the test, including practice questions, during their English class. If you have any questions, please contact Erin at edsouza@davincischools.org.
