PLACEMENT TESTS




Completion of Placement Tests is required for all new students. Prospective new first through fifth graders will need to complete a math placement test and schedule a time for a Reading/Comprehension test. We recommend placement tests to be taken before enrollment. If tests are not taken before enrollment, students have a 3-week window after enrollment to complete their tests. The last day to submit placement tests is Friday, August 3, 2018. FPA will only enroll students in courses for which they show proficiency through their placement testing.




TEST RESULTS

FPA will be in contact with you shortly after placement tests are completed. Once results are determined, students will be placed into the appropriate grade/class and the student's tuition invoice will be posted in the Parent Portal.

KINDERGARTEN

Those children who will be entering our Kindergarten need to take a readiness placement test. Using our live classroom, we will be screening letter and number recognition, oral communication skills, and recognition of shapes, colors, and patterns. The children will be asked to count from 1-20 and say their ABCs. Please click the link below to schedule a test.

*A child must be 5 on or before August 15 to enroll in Kindergarten.
