Placement/Scholarship Testing

Embedded Image for:  (2020520125113768_image.png)
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 ®) as our placement/scholarship test.

The OLSAT 8 is:
Tests verbal, nonverbal and quantitative abilities
75 minutes in length

Students will spend the first 20 minutes of their testing session becoming comfortable with the test format through guided practice questions. They will then take the 60-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 first hour of each placement test.

Test Dates & Sessions*:
*Each session is limited to 48 students.  Students may only test once. 

While each test session is open to students from ANY elementary/middle school, students feel comfortable when they test with students from their own eighth grade class.  Parents also enjoy interacting with other parents they know from their child's school during our parent information sessions.
