Testing Services


Academic assessment is absolutely essential to a strong educational program. The results of these tests provide valid and reliable data needed to evaluate the effectiveness of your educational program. The required testing for all students consists of:

  • Pennsylvania State School Assessment Tests (PSSA) as established by the Legislature will be administered at the required time and grade levels.

  • Final exams will be administered at the end of each school term in the following academic areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Foreign Languages, and Social Studies. The grade for each of these tests will appear as the Final Exam grade on the student report card and will be equivalent to a nine-week grade in computing the final grade for each course.


Samples of the SAT and ACT are available for students to become familiar and better prepared with taking either or both of the entrance exams.
