Admissions & Placement Assessment 

Taking the Admissions & Placement assessment is a vital part of completing the application into Valley Christian Elementary School, and is included in the application fee.

What does the assessment cover?  The assessment is used to ensure that incoming students are prepared for the academic load of the grade they are entering. VCES personally creates this assessment and it is administered by VCES teachers on campus .

Does my child need special preparation for these assessments?  No. The assessment covers the basic skills required of elementary students. The best preparation for a student is to do his/her best in general learning at his/her current school.

What do I bring to the test?  All testing materials are provided by VCES. 

How are these tests used for admissions and placement purposes?  Typically, a low assessment score does not automatically disqualify a student for admissions to VCES. Instead, these scores are evaluated alongside previous grades, standardized test scores, and educator recommendations to try to ascertain whether the individual student’s academic strengths and weaknesses are an effective educational match with VCES academics.
