Terra Nova / Assessments

Our Students Achieve Exceptional Results

We Are Academically Excellent...

Students in grades three, five and seven take the Terra Nova Test, Third Edition, in the spring of each school year. In comparison with the Archdiocese of Louisville Catholic elementary schools, St. Patrick students perform well above the Archdiocesan school average as well as the national norm. To help gauge overall student progress, we also test students in grades 2, 4 and 6 to help our teachers and parents understand how students are progressing.

St. Patrick Catholic School graduates do exceptionally well on the high school placement test each December. The HSPT (High School Placement Test) is another assessment we use to measure our students' progress as they graduate from St. Patrick and move to high school. An average of 87% of our alumni make their high school honor roll each quarter.
