More than just a college readiness or entrance exam; learn how the SAT and PSAT can help you while in high school!

Question: Is it required that 9th and 10th grade students take the PSAT in order to take CE classes next year?


Answer: The PSAT score is not required to place into a CE class. However, CCA's preference is that in considering a student's eligibility, the order of scores or assessments listed below are preferred. Due to scheduling deadlines, we ask students who do not currently meet CCA eligibility requirements to complete both the self assessment AND take the PSAT.

List of Preferred Placement Measures (Refer to the College Credit Guide for more details):

  1. Existing Accuplacer scores

  2. Existing SAT

  3. Grade Waivers for English & Math & 2.75 GPA

  4. PSAT scores (included on the waiver sheets)

  5. CCA Self Assessment Form for English and Math
