Incoming Freshmen Placement Test

Class of 2024 Now Forming!

Incoming Freshmen Placement Test

All 8th Graders are invited 

Saturday, December 7th; 8:00 am


This time of year marks the beginning of a very exciting time for the Marian Central Catholic community as we begin preparing for the upcoming school year. Please consider this my personal invitation to join our wonderful Marian family as a member of our Class of 2024.

The first step in the registration process is for interested 8th graders to take the freshmen placement test on Saturday, December 7, 2019. Please bring your student to Marian by 8:00 AM; the test will conclude by 11:15 AM. Please complete the enclosed Placement Test Registration Form and bring it to the test along with $15.00 either in cash or check payable to Marian Central to cover the test cost and processing. Pencils will be supplied; calculators are not allowed on the mathematics portion of the test. Please contact Mr. Taylor directly at by Wednesday, December 4 if your student requires specific accommodations during testing. Please note that this is not an entrance exam.  However, we highly recommend all students take the test; the results are a particularly useful tool for us to ensure proper academic placement resulting in the best chance of success for your student.

Please mark your calendar for the following upcoming events:

  • Friday, November 15th   8th Grade Visit Day: All current 8th grade students are invited to join Marian students and staff for a day set aside just for future Hurricanes of the Class of 2024.  Come see what life is like as a Hurricane!  If your student does not attend one of our Deanery Catholic schools, please call Mrs. DiSilvio to register for the day at 815-338-4220, x107.
