Evaluation and Standardized Testing
Parkview Baptist School CEEB and High School Code: 190-218
The High School Division of Parkview Baptist High School offers the following testing opportunities:
- Freshmen and sophomore students are administered the ACT Aspire during the fall semester. The Aspire is a computer-based test using multiple question types for English, math, reading, science, and writing. The test is anchored by the ACT, the capstone college readiness assessment, and is linked to the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks.
- The PSAT/NMSQT is a college readiness test administered each October to junior students. It is also used to determine National Merit qualifying students. It assesses reading, math, and writing skills as well as connects students to scholarships and personalized online tools. Those juniors who receive National Merit Semi-Finalist status are usually contacted by May of their junior year.
- Parkview Baptist School is an approved ACT testing center. Registering for the ACT is the student’s responsibility, and the ACT is taken at the expense of the student. All PBS students must have an official ACT or SAT test score included in their records prior to the start of their junior year.
National Merit Scholarship Program
Each year, all juniors at Parkview Baptist School take the PSAT and enter the National Merit Program. PBS students compete for scholarships sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation and are consistently recognized in the National Merit Scholarship Program.
