Standardized Tests
Please send us your most recent standardized test scores. It is your responsibility to send these scores to us or have your middle school send them to us.

  • Scores must be from a nationally normed test, such as Iowa Assessments or Stanford Achievement Test. (Any score that indicates a national percentile ranking – NPR)

  • If you do not have either of these, please call the office to discuss other options (770-578-3286).

Magnet Test
Non-CCSD students (private school, homeschool, out of district) must register to take the magnet admissions examination. This test is similar to the PSAT and is an important component of a complete magnet application.

The examination costs $5. Click the link below to see the specific administration dates and times. It is the student’s responsibility to register to take the test.
