Placement Test this Saturday!

2017-12-01

Dear friends,



This is a friendly reminder that our Placement Test for 8th grade students is this Saturday, December 2nd.



Eighth grade students interested in applying for the JCHS Academic Merit Scholarship, JCHS Catholic Education Scholarship, or the Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. Distinguished Scholarship must take the Placement Test on December 2nd (The Merit and Catholic Education Scholarship applications are found on our website. The Gerstner Scholarship application has not been officially released yet by the Diocese of Palm Beach).



By submitting an online application and paying the $55 application/testing fee, students are automatically registered for the December 2nd Placement Test, which will take place from 9 AM- noon on campus. To create an online application, please click here, https://jc-fl.client.renweb.com/oa/?memberid=2119. Please have the application completed and submitted by Thursday, November 30th to test on Saturday.



The test will begin promptly at 9 AM, so please plan to arrive between 8:30-8:45 AM, and report to the front office. Students will be placed into classrooms of 25 students alphabetically. The Scholastic Testing Service High School Placemen Test which is administered, is organized by sections including math, science, English, social studies, etc. The test will take 3 hours to complete, but the students will have two breaks. Students can be picked up between noon- 12:15 PM on the front patio. Students should bring a water bottle if they would like and a sweatshirt if they get cold easily.



During the Placement Test, parents are welcome to enjoy an informational “meet and greet” starting at 9 AM. Parents are encouraged to walk to the Learning Commons for an informational meeting. During our time together, I will share information regarding tuition assistance, the “Ram-for-a-Day” program, the Algebra and Spanish Placement exams, summer camps, and next steps for the registration process. The meeting will take approximately one hour, but I will be available to answer questions afterwards.



Please encourage your student not to be nervous, and remind them this is not a pass/fail test, but one that informs us of how we can best meet their needs academically (Honors level classes, Academic level classes, etc.).
