All prospective freshmen need to take our placement/scholarship test.
With students coming to NDCL from over forty different elementary and middle schools, we
find that our freshmen have diverse academic experiences and skill levels. In an effort to
strengthen our holistic review of students’ academic ability and better understand their unique academic gifts and talents, we administer the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test Eighth Edition
(OLSAT 8 ®) Level F as our placement/scholarship test.
The OLSAT 8 Level F is:
- Tests verbal, nonverbal and quantitative abilities
- 75 minutes in length
Students will spend the first 30 minutes of their testing session becoming comfortable with the test format through guided practice questions. They will then take the 75-minute assessment after a scheduled break.
NDCL offers academic scholarships to top scorers based on the results of our placement test. The Distinguished Scholar Award is a four-year, renewable, academic and leadership based scholarship.
Parent information sessions are held during the last hour of each placement test.
