EXPLORE - 8th Grade Test Scores


In addition to on-going formative classroom assessments, Holy Cross students participate in standardized testing on an annual basis beginning in grade 3.  Students in grades 3-7 take the ASPIRE test.  This test is administered in the Spring of each year.

Students in grade 8 take the Explore test in the fall.  This year, the test will be administered in early November. Given their written permission, parents may choose to share the results of the Explore tests with the high school(s) of their choice. 

Additionally, 8th graders may take entrance exams for the Catholic high school of their choice in January.
