Saint Bernard applicants come from a variety of academic backgrounds: home school, public school, private school, and parochial school. Entering students can have very different skill levels and abilities. Therefore, Saint Bernard School uses placement tests to assess an applicant's strengths and/or weaknesses in math and english. This enables us to place students in classes at the right level. In addition, The Saint Scholarship is given to the three incoming freshman who achieve the highest scores on our November and December placement tests.
Upcoming placement test:
Saturday, March 9, 2019
Students applying to grades 6 through 9 are required to take the Saint Bernard placement test. Tests are offered on select Saturday mornings in both the fall and spring. During the summer, the placement test is offered on select mornings throughout the week. All testing begins promptly at 8:30 AM and ends at noon. Advanced registration is required.
Select students identified through the results of their initial placement testing and/or transcript records will be contacted in late spring to take a supplemental placement test. These tests are intended as part of the information to be used by the Office of School Counseling for placing students into the most appropriate course sequence in foreign language or mathematics.
