    Mat-Su Middle College School CEEB Code: 020840


    It is recommended that students take the PSAT/NMSQT fall of 11th grade year, ACT and/or SAT for the first time spring of 11th grade year and retake ACT/SAT as necessary early fall of 12th grade year to have scores in time for college admission application deadlines.

    Additionally, we recommend all MSMCS students take an SAT and/or ACT at least once no later than March of senior year to try to qualify for the Alaska Performance Scholarship.
