All-School Testing Day: Wednesday, October 13

Next Wednesday, October 13, 2021 is an all-school testing day at Saint Joseph Academy.
Students in Grades 9, 10 and 11 will take standardized assessments (outlined below) while the Class of 2022 will use this day for college planning.

The Class of 2025 will be taking the PreACT, which simulates the ACT testing experience. The PreACT score and predicted ACT score ranges align to the ACT 1-36 scale. Subjects include English, Math, Reading, and Science. The test also includes an Interest Inventory. The results of the Interest Inventory will give students a personalized view of interests with college and career alignment.

The Class of 2024 and 2023 will be taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). The Juniors taking the PSAT/NMSQT and meeting published entry requirements, may enter the National Merit Scholarship Program conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation. The PSAT/NMSQT assessment measures the reading, writing, language, and math skills students need for college. After the test, students will receive feedback on how ready they are for college, career and for more than 20 AP courses.

Counselors will meet with all students to explain and review test formats and scoring. When the test results arrive, counselors will again meet with students to interpret their individual scores.  

Please review the approximate dismissal times as you arrange transportation for your daughter.
  • The Class of 2025 will be dismissed at approximately 11:30 a.m.
  • The Classes of 2024 and 2023 will be dismissed at 12 p.m.
Please note that the Dining Hall will be closed on all-school testing day.

At Saint Joseph Academy, we believe it is important to measure academic development to make certain that all students are prepared for each step along their educational journey. Please encourage your daughter to come well-rested and prepared to do her best on Wednesday, October 13.
