counselors meet with students when the results arrive to help them better
understand their individual results. A sophomore parent meeting, held in the

begins in the junior year.
The college guidance department meets with juniors in the
winter when they receive their PSAT scores to discuss the results and begin
preparing them for the SAT. In the spring, the college guidance department
