On Sat., Jan. 19, 2019* all current sixth and seventh graders are invited to take the Skutt Catholic High School practice exam. The test will consist of a standardized assessment of reading, mathematical, and language skills. The test is a measurement of educational development. Students taking this test experience testing conditions similar to those of the eighth grade scholarship and entrance exam.
The test will begin at 8 a.m. and end at approximately 11:45 and will be followed by a pizza lunch. Then, at 12 p.m., we will be offering optional 45-minute workshops. The workshops cost an additional $5. We encourage you to stay and participate. This is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with all Skutt Catholic has to offer!
If you have any questions please contact Director of Admissions Tim Bloomingdale at TimBloomingdale@skuttcatholic.com.
* Make-up sessions are not offered for the practice exam or workshops.
