Grade Placement Assessments

If you are interested in enrolling your child into Kindergarten or 1st grade, your child will take a one-on-one Grade Placement Test with one of our trained staff members. This test takes approximately 15-30 minutes.

If you are interested in enrolling your child into 2nd-12th 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.

Your child’s Grade Placement Test must be scheduled, so please call the school at 614-577-0900 to schedule the assessment. Assessments may be scheduled on Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday between 9:00 A.M. and 1:00 P.M.
