Every student at Evergreen Lutheran High School has been uniquely blessed with gifts that God desires to be used to serve Him and others in His kingdom.  Students are able to identify God’s plan of service for their adult life as they recognize and nurture their God-given talents and abilities.

It is our goal to help students discover the plans God has for them after their time at Evergreen.  These plans might include higher education in bachelor’s and associate degree programs, technical training, ministry, the military, or the workplace, all according to the gifts God has given our students.

Evergreen Lutheran High School uses and recommends several standardized tests to measure student academic progress and to prepare our students for college admissions.

The PSAT 9 This is the first test in the SAT Suite of Assessments. Tightly aligned with the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10, it establishes a baseline for college and career readiness as students enter high school.The PSAT 9 is designed for ninthgraders.

The PSAT 10 ThePSAT/NMSQT and the PSAT 10 cover the same content areas. Both tests provide students and educators with the chance to check in on progress toward college and career readiness and success. And both serve as an excellent way for students to preview and practice for the SAT, because they are tightly aligned with the new SAT. The PSAT 10 will give students access to free personalized SAT study. With students’ explicit permission, Khan Academy will use their PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10 results to create a study plan especially for them. Taking the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 can also connect students to AP courses, Scholarships, and Colleges.

The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is administered at ELHS to all juniors. The test has verbal, mathematics, and writing components and provides excellent practice for the SAT test. The test contains a college search feature which enables colleges to seek out able students and inform them of the offerings available in their colleges. The test results are used as qualifiers to enter the National Merit Scholarship competition.

Evergreen Lutheran High School offers the SAT to Juniors in the spring free of charge. Seniors are welcome to retake the exam for a small testing fee.
