  • Test Optional Colleges/Universities

    Many colleges and universities have suspended the requirement for college application testing (ACT/SAT).  Be sure to check colleges/universities admission requirements and consider looking at this website:  Fairtest.org for a list of colleges that are “test optional”.  You will not jeopardize your chances for admission if you choose not to submit SAT/ACT scores for colleges that are test optional.   

    Kamiak will be offering the PSAT on Saturday, October 14th @ 7:30am.  If you want to be considered for the National Merit Award Program as a junior, you will need to take the PSAT/NMSQT to qualify.  The cost for the PSAT in 2023 is $30 to be paid in the fall.  Pay with our bookkeeper in the Attendance Office and get a student guide and registration sheet with a Google link to register for Kamiak.  See Mr. Stelling if you have any questions.
