Central Catholic wants you to challenge yourself and work to the best of your abilities. If you wish to challenge the academic placement we have determined for you in the areas of math, English, biology, social studies, world language, or computer science, you may do so by taking a placement exam(s.)
If you wish to challenge your placement in English, biology or social studies, you must take the English placement exam. If you wish to challenge your placement in mathematics you must take the mathematics placement exam. If you wish to challenge your placement in world language you must take the world language placement exam. If you wish to challenge your placement in computer science you, must take the Computer Science Programming Assessment.
Students may take more than one placement exam but only one exam can be taken each day.
There is no fee for the exam(s) but you must register for each exam.
A placement exam in English is offered to 8th graders who have been placed in English I (Level 2), and/or Biology (level 2), and/or European Civilization (level 2.) If you wish to challenge your placement and move to Honors English I (Level 1), and/or Honors Biology and/or Honors European Civilization you must take the English exam. The score on this untimed, internal assessment will determine if your reading/writing skills qualify for the programs. A student who qualifies on this exam may take any or all of the above named classes.
World Language Exam
Students who have participated in Spanish or French programs in middle school or who are native speakers are encouraged to take a language placement exam. Based on the results of the exam, students will be placed in a world language class that is appropriate for their skill level.
Two different exams are offered in math.
A placement exam in algebra is offered to 8th graders who have been placed in Algebra I (Level 2), course # 312, but who wish to challenge their placement and move to Honors Algebra I & II (Level 1), course # 311.

Students who have completed Honors Algebra I as 8th graders and have been placed into Honors Algebra I & II, course # 311, may take a placement exam to determine placement in a more advanced honors math class.
