West Fork High School will be administering the PSAT on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 during the school day.  PSAT stands for Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test (PSAT?NMSQT).  Like the SAT, PSAT is designed to measure the ability to understand and process elements of reading, writing, and mathematics,  Students take the PSAT/NMSQT in their junior year  to determine National Merit scholarship eligibility and to prepare for the SAT.  Please sign up by Friday, September 8, 2017 if you are interested in taking the PSAT.

If you are interested in participating NIACC’s CNA program in the fall of 2018, please indicate so by signing your name to the list located in the high school office.  This sign up does not guarantee there will be a CNA program for West Fork students in the fall of 2018, it is merely a way to evaluate whether or not there is enough interest to support a CNA program at West Fork.  Please sign up by Friday, September 8, 2017 if interested.
