    Placement Test

    All freshmen who are enrolled for 2019 are already registered for the test. There’s no additional fee for enrolled freshmen. Check-in between 7:45-8:00 a.m. and plan to stay until 12noon.

    This is a general assessment of core competencies which helps determine the freshmen year coursework. Students should only bring pencils. No advance preparation is recommended. Students who are not yet enrolled because they’re still undecided can take the test with payment of $25 at check-in. A community-building lunch is provided before dismissal.

    Test awards are presented to the top scorers. All awards are applied to freshman year tuition, and many are renewable for each successive year of high school. Recipients will be notified before the start of the 2nd semester about those results.
