The 2021 PSAT/NMSQT

Juniors will take the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in October. These preliminary tests give students a baseline test score. Students who score in the top percentile will qualify for national scholarships.

Students do not need to register in advance for this test. It will be given during the school day and juniors will fill in all registration information during their English classes in late September. There is no cost associated with the test.

The 9th Grade Parent Night

This night is devoted to parents of freshmen. Information will be presented about 9th grade transition, programming, and resources for students and parents. The counselors will describe their role in supporting your child's Social and Emotional Learning, College and Career Readiness and Academic Advisement.

Mental Health Awareness and Resources

The Mental Health Team consists of school counselors, a social worker, school psychologists and a student assistance counselor. In conjunction with the faculty and administration, the Team identifies students who need support and they work together with the student and family to provide resources to assist the student. Our team will provide referrals to outside agencies, therapists and mental health providers.

College representative visits this fall.

Students are able to use Naviance to sign up for college representative virtual visits. Once a college schedules their visit with Byram Hills, students will be able to sign up for that visit. College visits will be hosted in the College and Career Center and students should bring their laptops. Large attendance college visits will be hosted throughout the school. Information about these locations will be sent to seniors.
