YouScience & Schedule Change for October 12
Parents of ninth graders: your student will report at the regular start of school time on Thursday, October 12 for YouScience testing. (Students in grades 10 and 11 will complete PSAT testing during the same time.)
YouScience testing administers a series of scientifically engineered brain puzzles to students to provide CVCA educators and administrators a glimpse into each student’s unique design by God as social creatures, problem solvers, and learners. These insights allow our educators, counselors, and academic success staff to refine and individualize the ways we support each high school student’s learning and course scheduling. Ninth-grade students will complete these tests under the direction of specially designated teachers and be dismissed for an early pickup at 10:20 a.m. To avoid any disruption to ongoing PSAT testing, please pick up your ninth-grade student from the Learning Commons entrance (north side of school).
