EXPLORE

EXPLORE is a test by ACT that assesses students’ college readiness in Reading, English, Math, and Science. Norms are compared nationally and statewide.

National Assessment of Education Program (NAEP)

8th Grade

At FCA, we do not teach to a mandated test, but rather use a nationally normed Achievment test, the Terra Nova 3, to track our students’ achievement.  We consider the ability to teach students rather than the content of a test to be one of the great benefits of being a private Christian school.
