If a child is scheduled for an evaluation after the February date, they may be required to complete an additional part. This additional component may be given especially if the evaluation date is much later in the school year. It will further test the knowledge of sight Vocabulary and Reading.
The Readiness Evaluation is a guide used by the Administration and Faculty with regard to admission to Nazareth Academy Grades School. It is not the sole basis for admission.
