SAT: Juniors have the opportunity to take a free SAT during the school day on February 26. If you have not already done so, go to collegeboard.com and set up an account. If you are prompted that you already have an account it is probably because you were a DUKE TIP tester (in the 7th grade) and you will have to contact collegeboard and get your user name and password.
Registration for the SAT opens December 11th. We will be having a junior class meeting before the holiday break and will give students information about how to register. Please register after this meeting.
New Grading System: Click here for the weighted grade point average system. This affects 9th and 10th grade students for this school year.

Honors and AP Program
Paschal has one of the most-recognized and valued Honors and AP (Advanced Placement) Programs among all of Fort Worth's public and private high schools, helping Paschal students be well-prepared for a collegiate experience. The AP program consists of possibly several years of preparation courses (known as “honors” or “Pre-AP” courses) at the 9th, 10th, and 11th grade years and often includes courses at the 8th grade and even at the 7th grade in middle school. The culmination of the process occurs when the student takes AP courses (college level classes) and then participates in the AP exams in May of the school year. Based on the scores of the AP exams, students may be able to earn college credit by "placing out" of college courses. However, the major benefit of the program is the excellent level of preparation students will have for college work. For more information, please talk to Paschal's Advanced Academic Office at 817-814-5041.
The SAT and ACT are the two primary tests students must take for college admission. Paschal is well-known for its summer SAT Camp. Students all over the city come from both public and private schools to take advantage of this special preparation course. Check this site regularly to learn more about the program, when it is offered and complete an application. Remember to check with specific colleges about which test/s they require.
