High School “Test Out” registration is now OPEN. Students are able to “test out” of any two HIGH SCHOOL level courses. Salina Intermediate typically has 3-5 students test out of Arabic 1. TESTING OUT means that you feel that you have acquired the knowledge to PASS a high school level course without ever taking it in school. If you are successful in taking the test and pass it then you will receive high school credit for it. Remember if you wish to test out, you must be highly successful in the course you are wishing to test out of. If it’s a foreign language, you must be fluent in that language by reading it and writing it.
The Deadline to register is Wednesday, May 5.
However, seats will fill up so I advise you to REGISTER as soon as possible if you are interested.
TO REGISTER: Email Mrs. Nowak with the following information using TEST OUT in the subject line:
1. First and Last Name
2. Student Number
3. High school Course(s) that you want to attempt to test out of
Test-Outs will be administered to Middle School Students on Wednesday, June 16th at ASC (the time is still being determined) You must provide your own transportation and this event is free.
The test location is :
Dearborn Public Schools Administrative Service Center 18700 Audette Dearborn, MI 48124
