Parents will also learn if their child is meeting, or exceeding their current grade level. By the end of the assessment, our academic director will suggest which program is best suited to support your child’s social, personal, and academic goals.

Our Assessment Fee is $90 for our standard assessment and parent reporting session. Please allow up to 60 minutes for the standard assessment. For younger students, an age appropriate version of the assessment will be used and the fee is $40.
