Placement test for new students Test Sign-up

Group testing

Most students join our program in the fall. To find classes that fit a student best, we offer free placement test for each student.

We offer several dates in August and September when interested students who want to join our classes, spend around an hour working on a test. After testing is completed, we grade it and email you our recommendations, which class to attend.

Individual testing

If you are looking to join our program after school year has started, we will conduct a free individual placement test. To schedule it, please contact us, and we will make arrangements for the test.

Who doesn't need to test?

  • Returning students
  • 3rd graders applying for Junior Circle 1
  • 5th-6th graders applying for Scratch
If you are unsure which classes to take, please ask us, or your teacher!

What do we test?

Most of our classes are designed to serve two grade levels. Sometimes a 5th grader feels more comfortable in a class for 4th and 5th graders, and sometimes he or she might thrive in a more challenging 5th-6th grade class.

Our tests are created to test knowledge on several key concepts that are taught across two possible choices of classes - problems that are offered in 4th-5th grade class, and those taught in th 5th-6th grade.

We also offer out-of-the-box thinking questions. Overall, there is no need to prepare for the test, and no tools, such as calculators are needed. The tests are about 12-15 questions, and are not timed. The students DO NOT bring their questions home.
