Placement Exams

To ensure that students entering 9th grade are placed in courses for which they are academically prepared, AHA offers placement exams in Math and World Language. Since curriculum among local grammar/middle schools vary, placement exam results are used by Department Chairpersons along with admissions test scores (SSAT) and high school transcript information to determine in which courses students will be placed. Placement Exams are administered in May to allow students time to cover these topics in their current school.
