Grade Placement Assessments


If you are interested in enrolling your child into Kindergarten or 1st grade, your child will take a computerized Early Literacy test with one of our trained staff members. This test takes approximately 30 minutes.

If you are interested in enrolling your child into 2nd-8th grades, your child will take a 1-2 hour computerized Grade Placement Test in the core subjects of Math and English.

Following the test, one of our Administrators will review the results of the test with you.

You will be contacted by our Enrollment Coordinator to schedule your child’s Grade Placement Test as soon as your application is complete and approved.  If you need to cancel or reschedule the assessment for any reason, please contact the school as soon as possible (614.261.1200).
