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.
2023-24 Placement Test Dates:
Saturday, Nov. 4, 8:30 AM
Saturday, April 13, 2024, at 8:30 AM
Students applying to grades 6 through 9 are required to take the Saint Bernard placement test. Contact Admissions for any middle school students and rising ninth-graders to take the placement test.
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 School Counseling Office for placing students into the most appropriate course sequence in foreign language or mathematics.
