Standardized Testing

Setting the Standard

Throughout the school year West Catholic offers both school-wide standardized practice tests as well as opportunities for taking standardized tests within our building.  We look forward to these opportunities for our students to show their knowledge.  Every year West Catholic students earn scores well above the national average.

The tabs below contain standardized testing information, test preparation resources, and testing dates.
