PSAT News:Each October, COIL has traditionally administered the PSAT to 10th-grade students along with 11th-grade students who opt into taking the test as a qualification for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Due to distance learning, as well as the California and Alameda County health restrictions around the assembly of people, COIL will not be offering the PSAT administration in October 2020. There are other scheduled PSAT administrations during the 2020-21 school year. If conditions improve and guidance from California and Alameda County allow, COIL may offer a full test administration at a later date.
Currently, the October PSAT administration is the only time students can qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program. As we learn more from College Board (the company behind the PSAT) and the National Merit Scholarship Program about possible changes to eligibility criteria, that information will be shared with COIL families
