As mentioned before, we offer a dual enrollment online learning program for children in grades five through eight. They may be enrolled at the academy and take advanced coursework or additional classes through the virtual school.Testing Programs
A comprehensive testing program is an important part of the educational program. The ITBS (Iowa Tests of Basic Skills) are administered to grades two through six in the spring. The program includes standardized testing of achievement and intelligence. The results of these tests are used as supplemental information by administrators and teachers in identifying special student needs. They are only one of the many ways by which the school measures achievement and potential, or attempts to identify problem areas.
In addition, our preparatory school reserves the right to offer a screening test. These tests are optional and at the discretion of the parent unless the teacher and the Principal determine the need to test a particular student.
