Standardized Testing

We don’t teach to the test at Mission Academy because we don’t believe that students are defined by their performance on a standardized test. We evaluate students on their knowledge and performance in a given subject area, but we also are looking for indicators of emotional and spiritual growth. We want to see our students thrive in a place where a grade on a test doesn’t dictate their self-esteem or their self-efficacy.  When parents request that a student be tested, we will oblige, but there is no “testing week” at Mission Academy.
